New hopes for Bell Helicopter?

AMARILLO, TX - Bell Helicopter is hoping to become the new home for a state-of-the-art aircraft delivery center, and the city of Amarillo is lending a hand.

Bell is competing with two other companies for the site which city officials believe will promote growth and diversity in Amarillo. The location selected for this facility will perform aircraft painting, customization, and will function as the training and orientation site for aircraft buyers and flight crews.

The proposed budget for the delivery center project is $8.9 million, and would be located at the existing Bell complex. The Amarillo Economic Development Corporation pledged to provide up to $6 million for the project's completion at a City Council meeting.
