Lane Evans, director, North America Sales, commented: “Life Flight Network has continued to see the value and performance the Bell 407 platform hasprovided in the last several years. The additional four Bell 407GXis with certified IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) capabilities will grow their state-of-the-art transport resources, allowing Life Flight Network to further increase community access to industry leading critical care transport.”
