The Bell 429, also known as the GlobalRanger, is a light, twin-engine helicopter introduced in 2009. It was jointly developed by Bell Helicopter and Korea Aerospace Industries. The initial design for this helicopter stemmed from a requirement for a medical emergency aircraft and was derived from the earlier Bell 427 model.
The Bell 429 prototype first flew in 2007, and the helicopter was officially announced in 2009. The finalized design addressed the need for increased cabin capacity to accommodate patient care needs. The Bell 429 features rear clamshell doors for easy patient and equipment loading, optional retractable landing gear, and operates more quietly due to advanced rotor utilization.
Red Box offers an extensive range of ground power and support equipment tailored for the Bell 429 aircraft. This includes tugs, ground power units, start power units and more.
