Bell have recently delivered a new Bell 429 from their facility in Czech Republic to Air Transport Europe, one of the main operators in Slovakia. The helicopter – serial 57143 – was test flown in Prague as OK-BHY (as seen in photos here) and was delivered as OM-ATR.
This is the second Bell 429 operating in Slovakia – the first is serial 57087 with Opera Air as OM-TIP.
We expect this is the 429 that Bell are to show at the upcoming European Helicopter Show, which takes place at Hradec Králové in the Czech Republic on 19-21 June 2014
