First Russian customer for Bell 429 with Mecaer interior


Bell Helicopter has sold the first Bell 429 in Russia outfitted with the Bell 429 MAGnificent luxury interior created by Italy-based Mecaer Aviation Group (MAG).

“We really wanted to give our customers a space that caters to their needs and combine it with the Bell 429’s smooth, advanced performance,” said Patrick Moulay, vice president of global sales and marketing at Bell Helicopter. “Our customers in Russia are really responding to this aircraft with MAG’s luxurious cabin interior and we expect this sale is the first of many to come.”

Customers can customize the interior of the Bell 429 MAGnificent to a variety of seating configurations, and choose from a range of Italian fabrics, colors and optional equipment. MAG’s interior incorporates two proprietary products, a passive noise abatement system called Silens, and the In-Flight Entertainment Enhanced Lounge (I-FEEL) – a touchscreen-based entertainment, communication and flight information management system.

“We are thrilled to provide the first Mecaer VVIP interior in Russia,” said Armando Sassoli, co-general manager at MAG. “We are proud to collaborate with Bell Helicopter on the Bell 429’s interior and look forward to supporting in service and delivery of the aircraft.”
