Hawker Pacific Showcases 412EPI At ANA+FNA, Announces Demonstrations

As a reflection of strong regional commitment to both the aeromedical and helicopter industries, Hawker Pacific, leading aircraft sales and product support company in Asia, the Pacific and the Middle East, will have a substantial presence at the 25th ANA+FNA Scientific Meeting 2013 in Melbourne next week. The Company will be exhibiting the Bell 412EPI helicopter before conducting specific demonstrations of the aircraft. 

Hawker Pacific and Bell Helicopter are proud Platinum Sponsors of the event, to be held at the Sofitel Melbourne 28th-30th August, which brings together the Australasian aeromedical industry on crucial air-support issues. Hawker Pacific will be showcasing the Bell 412EPI on static display at Essendon Airport for the duration of the event. 

Hawker Pacific will then be demonstrating the 412EPI in Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane. 

Tony Jones, Hawker Pacific’s Senior Vice President, Aircraft Sales Group said: “This is the first Bell 412EPI that has touched down in Australia, and we have had a significant level of interest in the product in the lead up to its arrival.” 

“The 412EPI’s ability to perform in extreme conditions, and its expansive, flexible cabin means it is perfectly suited for aeromedical and special mission use in this region. Additionally, the aircraft is now compliant with single pilot, Category “A” operations for elevated helipads, so we are delighted to present the aircraft to the attendees of the ANA+FNA Scientific Meeting, and then tour through Adelaide and the East coast. The tour will allow us to show stakeholders, clients and potential clients what this helicopter can really do.”
