Bell 412 EPI

Bell 412

Bell 412 EPI is a modern version of a multi-purpose helicopter capable of performing under all conditions and able to undertake any type of mission. The helicopter is powered by two Pratt & Whitney PT6T-9 Twin Pac® turbine engines with a capacity of 1122 SHP each, ensuring uncompromising performance regardless of altitude or air temperature and allowing a cruising speed of 122 knots (226 km / h). The huge helicopter cabin offers the possibility of transporting up to 14 passengers or various types of cargo. An optional transport hook enables external loads of over 2 tonnes to be taken up.

Bell 412 EPI is equipped with the most modern integrated avionics system Bell BasiX Pro, which effectively reduces the workload of the crew while increasing ergonomics. This ensures that the crew's situational awareness is not compromised even in the most demanding conditions, including flights with no visibility of the ground.

Bell 412 helicopters are used all over the world in emergency medical services, firefighting, public order organizations, crane services, military or passenger transport. Reliable construction dating back to the roots of the legendary Bell UH-1 "Huey" helicopter, high performance, modern avionics, and wide configuration options make the Bell 412 EPI a universal workhorse for any type of task.
