Bell 407 GXi

The dynamic capabilities of the Bell 407GXi have earned it a reputation as a reliable and versatile helicopter.

2x in Grenchen
1 pilot | 6 passengers

The helicopter is particularly impressive due to its fast flight speed while remaining true to its smooth and stable flight characteristics.

The Bell 407 GXi has a total of 6 passenger seats and offers excellent all-round visibility. At Mountainflyers, the helicopter is used for sightseeing, taxi and sling load operation flights as well as for pilot training. The Bell 407 GXi has a fully autonomous digital turbine control system (FADEC), which reduces the pilot's workload and minimizes the risk of turbine damage.
Like its little sister, the Bell 505, the Bell 407 GXi is equipped with the latest Garmin 1000 avionics.

The Garmin 1000 combines navigation, engine parameters and radio communication on two large displays. This makes for a tidy cockpit and facilitates pilot's work load.
