Bell Helicopter, a Textron Inc. company, announced on Feb. 8 the delivery of two Bell 505 Jet Ranger X helicopters to Asian Aviation Resources Pte. Ltd. in Cambodia.
One of the helicopters, which will be operated by Helicopters Cambodia, will be used to facilitate the United States Department of Defense’s Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) in their efforts to find missing U.S. military personnel in Southeast Asia. The other helicopter will be used for tourism related charters.
“We are proud to play a role in the U.S. DPAA’s noble mission to reunite missing United States military personnel with their families and to give an account to the nation,” said Sameer A. Rehman, managing director of Bell Helicopter Asia Pacific. “Once again, our thoughts and gratitude go out to all the families who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the freedom we as Americans enjoy today. We look forward to working with the DPAA and Helicopters Cambodia to ensure the success of both the DPAA and Helicopters Cambodia’s missions throughout Southeast Asia and beyond.”
