Bell Textron has announced that Life Flight Network, the largest not-for-profit air medical program in the country, will add four additional Bell 407GXi helicopters.
These aircraft will bring the operating fleet to seven Bell 470GXis, making Life Flight the largest air medical operator of the Bell 407GXi in the Pacific Northwest and Intermountain West.
