Canadian STC validation for Bell 429 MAGnificent


Mecaer Aviation Group (MAG) has validated its VIP interior for the Bell 429 with Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA). MAG developed and branded the MAGnificent interior for the Bell 429 under an EASA STC in May 2015. Since then, MAG has applied for various validations around the globe.

Customers can choose to have four, five or six seats in the cabin, with options for up to two center consoles, MAG’s proprietary In-Flight Entertainment Enhanced Lounge (I-FEEL) and passenger-controlled electrochromic windows. I-FEEL provides passengers with moving maps and audio/video entertainment, along with an internal wi-fi interface to personal smart devices.

The interior also includes MAG’s Silens noise-canceling system, which is designed to reduce cabin noise to a level where normal conversation can be conducted between passengers without headsets.

“The MAGnificent continues to gain momentum around the world and the validation with the TCCA marks a key milestone for the program,” said Armando Sassoli, co-general manager of MAG. “We will continue to validate our STC and anticipate two additional certifications before the end of 2015.”
