Mecaer Aviation Group's (MAG) luxury interior for the Bell 429 has received validation from Transport Canada Civil Aviation. MAG developed and branded the MAGnificent for the Bell 429 under an EASA STC in May. Since then, it has applied for various international validations. Customers can choose from four-, five- or six-seat layouts, with options for up to two center consoles, MAG’s proprietary I-FEEL (in-flight entertainment enhanced lounge) and passenger-controlled electrochromic windows. 

The interior includes MAG’s “SILENS” noise-canceling system, which reduces the cabin noise to a level where passengers can conduct normal conversation without headsets. Meanwhile, MAG’s I-FEEL technology provides passengers with moving maps and audio/video entertainment, along with internal Wi-Fi interface to personal smart devices.

“The MAGnificent continues to gain momentum around the world, and the validation with the TCCA marks a key milestone for the program,” said Armando Sassoli, co-general manager of Mecaer Aviation Group. The company anticipates two more certifications before year-end.
