Edic Horizon International Flight Academy has signed a deal to purchase two Bell 429 helicopters. The operator aims to use the aircraft for ATP, Instrument, multi-engine and specialized mission training.
The flight training facility seeks to further expand its services and aims to include twin engine aircraft. Edic´s Bell 429 purchase underlines the ambition of the company.
Both aircraft will be based at Al Ain International Airport in the United Arab Emirates. For its missions, the academy uses Bell aircraft only. Edic Horizon International Flight Academy provides unparalleled flight training for international students as well.
Hareb Thani Al Dhaheri, CEO, Horizon International Flight Academy, commented: “We are thrilled to add the Bell 429 to our flight training fleet [...] Bell aircraft has been an essential part of our operations since our creation, and this purchase marks the expansion of our services. The Bell 429 will be utilized for ATP, Instrument, multi-engine and specialized mission training.”
David Sale, managing sales director, MEA at Bell, said “EDIC Horizon International Flight Academy sets the precedent for excellent training services in the Middle East [...] We are honoured that they continue to choose Bell aircraft for their operations, and our team looks forward to introducing one of our smoothest aircraft to their staff and students.”
Bell´s B429 is said to have one of the lowest vibrations in its class. Composite and metallic parts lead to a balance between flexibility, durability and safety. The aircraft meets all of today´s airworthiness requirements to ensure the best possible safety.
