The Bell 429 GlobalRanger is a light, twin-engine helicopter developed by Bell Helicopter and Korea Aerospace Industries, based on the Bell 427. First flight of the Bell 429 prototype took place on February 27, 2007, and the aircraft received type certification on July 1, 2009.
Although it had its sights on being an Air Ambulance its found most use as a luxury 7 seat executive helicopter.
We used this one on Sky’s “The Tunnel” landing it on the tracks in the Eurostar maintenance base in Kent. All good fun.
If you’d like to know more about it then give us a call.

Had a weekend test fitting for the Bf108. We’re going to steal an idea from a German example. Original instruments but with a modern stack of EFIS and radios hidden in the glove boxes. Found an original set of Messerschmitt lap straps for refurb! #avgeek #avgeeks #bf108 #me108 https://t.co/6cFqNnbmf719th November 2018
