Final Bell 412EP delivered to the Philippine Department of National Defense


Bell Helicopter has delivered the eighth of eight Bell 412EP helicopters to the Philippine Department of National Defense (DND). “We are proud to deliver the final of eight Bell 412EP aircraft today – three months ahead of schedule and, as promised, in time for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit in November 2015,” said Sameer A Rehman, managing director of Bell Helicopter, Asia-Pacific.

The eight Bell 412EP helicopters were purchased with the government-to-government contracting support of the Canadian Commercial Corporation (CCC), and fully meet the DND’s modernization requirements. Bell Helicopter began staged deliveries in June 2015 of the eight aircraft, which will be used for combat utility and VIP transport operations, as well as relief efforts.

The Bell 412EP offers a cruise speed of 122kts, range of 357 nautical miles and accommodates 13 passengers and two crew members.
