The MAGnificent VVIP interior developed by Mecaer Aviation Group (MAG) for the Bell 429 helicopter is being installed for the first time. The work is taking place at Bell Helicopter’s facility in Prague, the Czech Republic. MAG’s custom interior incorporates a noise abatement technology called Silens, and an interactive, touchscreen-based IFE management system called In-Flight Entertainment Enhanced Lounge (I-FEEL). Customers can choose from a range of seating configurations, amenities, fabrics and color options.
“It is great to be collaborating with Bell Helicopter on installing this innovative interior in such an advanced aircraft,” said Armando Sassoli, co-general manager of MAG. “This is the first step in delivering our state-of-the-art product to eager customers and we could not be more excited to start this process.”
“We teamed up with MAG and decided Bell Helicopter’s Prague facility was the perfect location to install and customize the Bell 429 with Mecaer’s VVIP interior,” said Jakub Hoda, vice president and managing director for Europe at Bell Helicopter. “Our Prague facility is centrally located to better serve our growing customer base around the world.”
