Bell Helicopter makes CQGA delivery

Bell Helicopter has delivered a Bell 412EPI to Chongqing General Aviation (CQGA). The helicopter is the first certified Bell 412 type aircraft to operate in China and will be used for fire-fighting missions.

“We are pleased to deliver the most rugged and reliable medium helicopter on the market to Chongqing General Aviation,” said Chad Nimrick, general manager of Bell Helicopter’s Piney Flats Customization and Delivery Center. “This will be the first Bell 412 type aircraft in China, and we are certain interest in the Bell 412EPI will only grow as its superior performance and capabilities are demonstrated during life-saving missions.”

“We are proud to accept this fine aircraft into our operations, and we are excited to deploy its integrated avionics, payload and lift capabilities to complete firefighting, forest protection, emergency rescue, and law enforcement missions,” said Gong Wei, Chairman of CQGA. “We look forward to continued partnership with Bell to bring helicopter and maintenance capabilities to China as the demand for helicopters grows.”
Established in April 2012 by the Chongqing General Aviation Group (CGAG), CQGA’s business scope includes tourism, air ambulance, forestry support, aerial advertising, agriculture support, aerial photography, VIP flights, law enforcement support, firefighting, and charters.

The new Bell 412 EPI was outfitted with a fire-fighting water tank, Bambi bucket, hoist, cargo hook, radar altimeter, and search light and will join CQGA’s fleet of aircraft that also includes two Bell 407GX helicopters.
