Want a nice ride through the Swiss mountains? From this week it is possible on a new Bell 429 helicopter, operated by Heli-Alps. The Swiss-based company offering corporate transport, sightseeing tours and aerial photography just got its VIP configured Bell 429 delivered.

Serving a company with multiple mission requirements, the Bell 429’s flight capacity, comfortable seating, luxurious interior and economical light twin engine all helped drive Heli-Alps’ choice of a Bell helicopter. Additional equipment such as the Cineflex Camera and Heli-Ski with utility basket will give Heli-Alps additional capabilities and performance to meet their customer needs in their daily operations.

The Bell 429 offers a fully integrated glass cockpit, a Wide Area Augmentation System navigation and Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) capability. Additional safety features include a collective mounted throttle, damage tolerant hub and rotor system, and energy attenuating seats. The chopper has 60 inch side doors.
