Safran Showcases Helicopter Engine Innovation at ALEA Expo 2017
August 4, 2017
Safran Helicopter Engines attended the Airborne Law Enforcement Association (ALEA) Expo held at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center in Reno, NV, July 24 through 29. During this annual event dedicated to public safety aviation, ALEA provides companies with a platform to showcase their products and services to decision-makers and end users, while creating a unique learning environment in which classes and conferences are offered.
Safran, a supplier of key technologies to U.S. law enforcement agencies, spotlighted the Arrius 2R helicopter engine at its booth. Launched in 2013, the Arrius 2R was selected to power the Bell 505 Jet Ranger X. The first U.S.-assembled Arrius 2R was delivered to Bell Helicopter last year. At Heli-Expo in March, Bell Helicopter and Safran Helicopter Engines celebrated the first delivery of the Bell 505 to U.S. operator Pylon Aviation.
In addition to exhibiting at this year's event, Safran Helicopter Engines also sponsored the opening reception, the "Powered Up" Scholarship and the "Technical Specialist of the Year" Award.
