Bristol, Tenn.-based Edwards & Associates (Booth No. 3981), an affiliate of Bell Helicopter, is delivering a second new Bell 412 to the Orange County Fire Authority (OCFA) at Heli-Expo’09. The company delivered the first 412 last November. The two 412s are replacements for the two 1966 UH-1s that Orange County put in service in 1995. Edwards won the competitive bid to modify the 412s with AeroDynamics night-vision lighting system, a rescue hoist, an Avalex mapping system with digital video recorder and tactical radios. The helicopters will be used primarily for fire fighting and rescue.
