JAPAN COAST GUARD SIGNS FOR TWO ADDITIONAL SUBARU BELL 412EPX HELICOPTERS

Bell Textron Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE:TXT) company, announced that Subaru Corporation has signed a contract for two additional SUBARU BELL 412 EPX helicopters with the Japan Coast Guard.

These SUBARU BELL 412EPX helicopters will support the Japanese Coast Guard’s maritime security, search and rescue operations, maritime disaster relief efforts, and cargo transport needs. With today’s contract signing, the Japan Coast Guard’s fleet of SUBARU BELL 412EPX helicopters has grown to six aircraft.

 

The Japan Coast Guard has operated more than 40 Bell 212 and 412 helicopters for over five decades. The transition to the SUBARU BELL 412EPX was a logical next step due to shared design commonalities. With an extended hover ceiling, increased payload capacity, robust main rotor gearbox and dry run capability, the SUBARU BELL 412EPX delivers superior operational performance and efficiency while maintaining its long-standing reputation for reliability. Moreover, the SUBARU BELL 412EPX features state-of-the-art integrated avionics with large and intuitive displays that greatly reduce a pilot’s workload.
