Mecaer Aviation Group continues growth with approval of H145 mod and first delivery of VIP 429 in same week
Mecaer Aviation Group, Inc. (MAG) announced yesterday the delivery of the first Bell 429 MAGnificent in the United States.
In addition to being the first US based MAGnificent, this aircraft demonstrates the ability to complete an installation on a pre-owned aircraft. The MAGnificent can be installed on the production line at Bell Helicopter and is the factory option for the VIP series interior.
The Bell 429 received a complete refurbishment by MAG’s team – MAGnificent VIP interior, new paint, 4th axis auto-pilot, maintenance activities and various other modifications. The customizing activities for the VIP interior were completed at MAG’s FAA Part 145 facility based at Northeast Philadelphia’s airport (PNE).
In addition, MAG’s client requested interchangeable configurations for multiple flight profiles. The interior can quickly be converted from four, five or six seat configurations. A center console and electro-chromic windows were installed for additional in-flight comfort.
“The MAGnificent series for Bell Helicopter keeps gaining momentum,” said Armando Sassoli, Co-General Manager of Mecaer Aviation Group. “The US based Bell 429 will catch everyone’s eyes and is a flying advertisement for MAG’s capabilities and craftsmanship.”
