NorthStar Aviation’s Bell 407 Option
Abu Dhabi-based NorthStar Avia-
tion has developed a new military
derivative of the Bell 407, and has
received an order for 30 of the heli-
copters from the UAE Armed Forces.
NorthStar has already delivered
11 production models of its Model
407MRH (MRH standing for Multi-
Role Helicopter) and plans to deliver
the remainder at a rate of about
one per month through to the end
of 2016. The company has received
expressions of interest from poten-
tial customers in the Middle East,
Europe and South America.
Founded in January 2011 and
owned by Sheikh Ahmed bin Saif al
Nahyan, a member of the Abu Dhabi
royal family, NorthStar Aviation is a
flexible, full-spectrum aviation mod-
ification, maintenance, repair and
overhaul organisation working with
government and military clients.
