BELL is proud to be participating in this year’s edition of Japan International Aerospace Exhibition on booth #7401.
BELL has a long history in Japan and has been collaborating with SUBARU Corporation for over 60 years. We were the first OEM to deliver military helicopters in 1954 to the Japan Ground Self Defense Force (JGSDF) and since then, we have delivered 1500 aircraft in Japan and count among our recent successes the UH-X and V-22 for the JGSDF programs.
During the show, BELL will highlight:
- For the first time in Asia Pacific, BELL will display a life-size model of one of its Autonomous Pod Transport (APT) at Japan Aerospace. BELL’s APT utilizes a tail-sitting eVTOL configuration and an innovative payload pod. The eVTOL can reach speeds of more than 100mph and can be small enough to handle loads up to 15 pounds, or large enough to transport 1,000 pounds. The APT capability enables a whole new level of expedited service and operational efficiency.
- The AH-1Z is the most advanced helicopter in the world. Built for expeditionary warfare, the aircraft is rugged, reliable and lethal. It’s small logistical footprint provides exceptional operating value and gives you the lowest acquisition, operation and lifecycle cost.
- The Bell 505 Jet Ranger X light single engine helicopter is one of Bell’s most in demand commercial aircraft in the world. Operated by the Japan Coast Guard for training, the five-seater was designed through customer collaboration to ensure both pilot and passenger receive a safe, smooth and enjoyable experience. To guarantee efficient and reliable performance, the design consists of proven dynamic components, advanced aerodynamic design, a dual channel FADEC Turbomeca Arrius 2R engine and best-in-class value. With more than 100 delivered around the world and over 10 000 hours of operation on the fleet, it’s designed to be easier and safer to fly thanks to its superior standard equipment and state-of-the-art Garmin 1000H TM glass cockpit.
- The Bell 429 is designed with the future in mind, enhancing occupant safety, with the adaptability to remain at the forefront as mission requirements evolve. With over 330 000 hours of proven operations on the global fleet, the Bell 429 is chosen by police forces, air medical teams including Naka Nihon Air Services and Nishi Nippon Airlines, around the world for time-sensitive missions.
