Being shown in Latin America for the first time is the MAGnificent interior for the Bell 429 helicopter, created by the Mecaer Aviation Group (MAG, Booth 1009). The VVIP interior has been designed with a range of amenities, including a center console with access to storage, insulated drink container and USB ports.

Drawing on Italian design excellence, the MAGnificent cabin promotes luxury and functionality. It incorporates two of MAG’s proprietary systems; the SILENS cabin noise reduction system and the I-FEEL (inflight entertainment enhanced lounge) cabin management system.

MAG is promoting the MAGnificent interior around the world. “We anticipate a positive response at the show in Brazil this week,” said co-general manager Armando Sassoli. “We see increased demand, particularly in São Paulo.” The cabin interior is scheduled to receive its supplemental type certificate in January.

Meanwhile, Bell Helicopter is preparing to delivery the 200th example of the 429. Miramar Empreendimentos Imobiliáros, a São Paulo, Brazil-based construction and real estate group, will take delivery of the aircraft at the end of August.
