Aug 10, 2017: Safran Helicopter Engines exhibited its Arrius 2R helicopter engine at the Airborne Law Enforcement Association (ALEA) Expo held at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center in Reno, Nevada from July 24 - 29.
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.
ALEA offers companies with a platform to display their products and services to decision-makers and end users, while creating an exceptional learning environment in which classes and conferences are provided.
Besides 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.
