The Bell 412 is one of the most reliable, rugged and versatile helicopters on the market. The Bell 412 is the daily workhorse that reliably performs in some of the most extreme climates around the world every day. It provides multi-mission flexibility while its wide opening 7.7 ft./2.3m doors easily accommodate forklift loadings into a spacious 220 sq. ft./6.2 sqm. cabin. Along with its spacious cabin, the aircraft can be configured in a variety of ways to accommodate up to 14 passengers.

The Bell 412 and Bell 212 are backed by Bell Helicopter's renowned in-service support, voted #1 by our customers 22 years running, and the company was recently voted best in the business in Vertical Magazine's Helicopter Manufacturers Survey.
