Here's a another shot of it. I only know of three in Canada. This one is slated to be replaced by a 429 soon.

My company has the first 429 in it's possesion, and has had for months. Still not certified and online yet far as I know. Hospital insisted on it, even though talking them out of it was tried. But some folks you just can't reason with. I predict it will be about as big a flop as the 427.

Nice aircraft, but Bell is having trouble getting it certified and for EMS eurocopter just simply offers far better machines. Bell just doesn't seem to want to invest any money in to developing new aircraft to compete. Mostly content to live off of government contracts for updated versions of old military airframes.

Remember the Bell affordable modular product line they kept selling? Where is it?

That really blew me away. I still want to know what a balanced pair of those will cost, on average.

Are we both scraping from PPRuNe?
