Avionics
The Bell 429 highlights the Bell BasiX-Pro™ Integrated avionics system (2nd Gen)
The Bell BasiX-Pro™ Avionics System has been specifically designed to meet the requirements of twin engine helicopters and is optimized for IFR, Category A, and EU-OPS compliant operations. The system is highly flexible and configurable to meet various operating and customization needs. The system takes advantage of the latest in display, computer processing, and digital data bus technology to provide a high degree of redundancy, reliability, and flexibility.

The Bell 429 fully integrated cockpit features:
  • Sigle pilot IFR Capability (Dual-pilot option)
  • Automatic Flight Control System (AFCS) featuring redundant digital flight control computers (FCCS) and providing 3-axis or 4-axis capability
  • All Engine Indication and Crew Alerting System (EICAS)
  • Other aircraft systems interfaces, warnings, cautions, aural alerts, and automated performance features are provided through the remotely located Aircraft Data Interface Unit (ADIU)
  • Power and performance situational awareness enhanced through Bell patented power situation indicator (PSI) gauge
  • Communication, navigation and surveillance system using Garmin GTN-750/650 NAV/COM/WAAS GPS system

The BasiX-Pro™ 2nd generation system incorporates Multi-Function “smart” displays units from Astronautics Corporation of America (ACA). As an additional safety feature, the 2nd generation design also includes 1-button instant couple features that quickly restore coupled flight in the event of pending disorientation:
  • Pressing the collective-mounted GA (go around) will re-engage force trim and attitude hold if necessary and will set the aircraft to climb in a level roll attitude
  • Pressing the CHFD “CPL” button when uncoupled will re-engage force trim and attitude hold if necessary and will stabilize flight by coupling the flight director to hold current heading, vertical speed, and if 4-axis, airspeed as well. From there, the pilot can adjust references and change modes as required.
Powerplant
  • Dual Engines
    Dual Pratt & Whitney Canada electrically-controlled PW-207D1/D2 engines
  • Max Continuous
    2 × 635 shp / 2 × 474 kW
  • Takeoff
    2 × 719 shp / 2 × 536 kW
Increased Gross Weight (IGW)
Transport Canada approved operation of the Bell 429 at an internal gross weight of 7,500 lb (3,402 kg) in December 2011, increasing the platform's gross weight and enabling customers to operate with greater payloads. To date, the Bell 429 increased gross weight (IGW) has been approved by more than 25 countries, including Canada, China, Brazil and Australia with pending validation in additional nations.

Operation at an internal gross weight of 7,500 lb (3,402 kg) requires installation of the following equipment:
  • Flashing Forward Light
  • Radar Altimeter
  • Helicopter Terrain Avoidance and Warning System (HTAWS)
  • Cockpit Voice Recorder/Flight Data Recorder
Additional IGW equipment adds approximately 21lb / 10kg of weight to the base aircraft empty weight
