Bell has delivered the first of a six-aircraft LongRanger order to Gulf of Mexico operator Rotorcraft Leasing Company (RLC).

The addition of the new 206L-4 LongRanger brings the RLC fleet to a total of 52 Bell helicopters, including 28 LongRangers. The fleet also includes 16 JetRangers, six 407s and two 412s, making the firm the third largest helicopter operator in the Gulf. The contract for the six aircraft was signed late last year, and delivery of the remaining five aircraft is due before year-end.
