Bell Helicopter has announced an expanded industrial and commercial agreement with PT Dirgantara Indonesia (Persero) (PTDI) that will enable the two companies to expand their support and services in Indonesia to Bell Helicopter operators. The agreement was signed on November 30, 2015.
Bell Helicopter and PTDI had an agreement in place from 2012. This extension further solidifies PTDI’s customization and delivery work for the Bell 412 platforms and allows PTDI to enhance its relationship with other Bell Helicopter customers and for additional commercial aircraft models. Indonesia’s armed forces have long been served through the Bell Helicopter and PTDI relationship.
PTDI’s core competencies are design and development, structure manufacturing, assembly and other services for civilian and military aircraft. The new agreement extends the companies’ cooperation for the next five years, enabling PTDI to conduct joint sales and marketing, customization, aircraft delivery, aircraft component manufacturing and aircraft maintenance.
Bell Helicopter has had a presence in Indonesia for more than 50 years and currently fields more than 100 aircraft, supported by a Bell-authorized customer service facility and two dedicated full-time customer service engineers in Jakarta, as well as through its Singapore service facility.
