Bell Textron has announced that Life Flight Network, a not-for-profit air medical programme, will add four additional Bell 407GXi helicopters.
These aircraft will bring Life Flight Network’s current operating fleet to seven Bell 407GXis, remaining the largest air medical operator of the Bell 407GXi in the Pacific Northwest and Intermountain West.
Critical care transport
“Life Flight Network has continued to see the value and performance the Bell 407 platform has provided in the last several years,” said Lane Evans, director, North America Sales. “The additional four Bell 407GXis with certified IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) capabilities will grow their state-of-the-art transport resources, allowing Life Flight Network to further increase community access to industry leading critical care transport.”
Life Flight Network’s total Bell fleet will consist of four Bell 429s and 25 Bell 407GX-series helicopters, providing critical care transportation to those in need.
