Meridian Helicopters, an industry-leading helicopter refurbishment, leasing, and brokering company, is pleased to announce the successful delivery of a custom-refurbished Bell Helicopter 206L4 aircraft to Clearview Air LLC, a private company based in Lubbock, Texas.
Mr. Bashlor, the Managing Partner at Meridian Helicopters, commented on the specifications of the refurbished helicopter: “This Bell 206L4 is a full, ground-up refurbishment tailored for corporate operations. It’s equipped with a new Garmin avionics package featuring Bluetooth technology, a Bose headset system, a glass cockpit that includes G500 TXI, GI 275, Heli SAS auto-pilot, NVG, air conditioning, and custom leather seating.”
Upon completion, the aircraft showcases an approximate 70% average time remaining on components, demonstrating the extensive effort invested in overhauling its main components, engine, and airframe to restore a condition akin to that of a new aircraft.
Clearview Air’s Kevin Reed expressed high praise for the refurbished Bell Helicopter model: “This is my second Bell refurbishment from Meridian Helicopters. After owning a Bell 206 L3 model for the last five years, I decided it was time to upgrade. The specifications were meticulously detailed, and the final product exceeded my expectations. This Bell is one of the most advanced and elegantly finished L4 models in recent years. I intend to enjoy this aircraft for years to come, and I can’t thank Mike Bashlor and his team enough for realizing my dream helicopter.”
