  1. Bell Textron; Wheels UP Announce Partnership
    Earlier in the month Wheels UP and Bell Textron announced a strategic partnership. This involved a continuation of the client-based offerings that Wheels UP have for their customers but in the press release it outlined specific information regarding the use of Bell Textron's Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) aircraft by Wheels UP. The partnership will see Wheels UP utilize Bell 429 luxury helicopters but later on as the VTOL from Bell Textron comes on stream and into service the company will then use those for customer transport.
  2. The strategic partnership with Bell Textron will enable Wheels Up Members and Customers to travel via Bell's industry-leading VTOL aircraft across a number of intra-city markets. Bell is a global leader in VTOL, and the engineering, technical expertise, and track record of the team at Bell is unsurpassed in the industry. "We are always looking for different ways and new features to enhance the services we provide to our Members and Customers and this is a logical evolution of our systematic disruption of the aviation industry, and a vision to extend our holistic approach to air transportation," said Kenny Dichter, Founder and CEO of Wheels Up. "Our strategic initiative with global innovation leader Bell is focused on serving our Members' and Customers' travel needs using our leading-edge Avianis Flight Management System technology platform for helicopter service."
