Bell Helicopter has announced the successful demonstration of the Bell 412EPI across Nepal, showing its suitability for the higher areas of Africa such as Kenya and Ethiopia.

The helicopter demonstrated landings and take offs from 15,200 ft., ground effect hover at nearly 18,000 ft. density altitude before flying up to 20,000 ft. pressure altitude.
 
“The Bell 412EPI received praise for its smooth ride, maneuverability and increased performance in high altitudes proving that our products are built to perform in the highest terrain on the planet,” said Sameer A. Rehman, managing director, Asia Pacific.
 
The Bell 412EPI uses the Bell BasiX Pro integrated glass flight deck, which is optimised for IFR, Category A and JAR OPS3 compliant operations and equipped with high resolution digital maps, electronic charts and approach plates, ADS-B transponder and optional HTAWS and XM satellite links.
 
The helicopter also uses Pratt & Whitney’s PT6T-9 Twin Pac engines, providing 15% more horsepower than the standard Bell 412.
