Bell will complete modernisation work on the first nine Canadian Armed Forces CH-146s, with the remainder of the 85 aircraft upgraded by Alpine Aerotech and Heli-One Canada.

Bell Textron Canada has awarded subcontracts to Alpine Aerotech and Heli-One Canada to support modernisation of the Canadian Armed Forces CH-146 Griffon (Bell 412) helicopter fleet.

Bell was awarded the contract to extend the life of the 85-helicopter fleet in May 2022 by Public Services and Procurement Canada and will modify the first nine aircraft itself. 

Subsequent aircraft will be modified by the subcontractors.
