"Corporate helicopter numbers are continuing to grow and because this helicopter type is perfectly suited to the Australian corporate and regional markets, the product is becoming more and more significant across the country," Tony Jones, senior vice-president of Hawker Beechcraft Aircraft Sales and Flight Services Group, said in a statement.

This is the sixth Bell 429 delivered by Hawker Pacific, which distributes and supports several aircraft types in the Asia-Pacific region.
