OUR FLEET

The Bell 407 is a four-blade, single-engine helicopter. The 407's fuselage is 8 inches (18 cm) wider, increasing internal cabin space, and includes 35% larger main cabin windows. The more powerful Rolls-Royce/Allison 250-C47 turbo shaft allows an increase in Maximum Takeoff Weight and improves performance at hotter temperatures and / or higher altitudes. The 407's airframe is generally similar to the Long Ranger, but includes a carbon fibre composite tail boom. The helicopter has standard seating for two crew and five cabin seats.
