The aircraft will be used for corporate transportation around Ukraine.
Upon taking delivery of the aircraft in Mirabel, Canada, the 407GXi was flown to Ukraine by Maksym Lunov, the pilot and owner of Heliclub, one of Bell’s Ukrainian Independent Representatives, with the customer on board. The aircraft completed a transatlantic flight, making stops in 13 countries.
“This Bell aircraft is comfortable, safe, and reliable. It enabled us to have a unique travel experience that most people don’t get the opportunity to do,” the 40GXi customer said. “There were many highlights on the trip, but some of the most memorable were seeing the icebergs in Greenland, volcanoes and waterfalls in Iceland and the Alps in Switzerland.”
“I’ve been a pilot for 13 years, and a transatlantic flight is something I’ve always wanted to do. It would not have been easily done without the IFR kit,” added Lunov.
Last year, air ambulance service HALO-Flight also acquired a Bell 407GXi.
