Bell Helicopter Building Choppers For The Czech Republic

The Amarillo Bell Helicopter plant will be producing attack choppers for the Czech Republic.

Bell officials say they’ve started building the AH-1Z Viper choppers at the Amarillo facility and is already building the UH-1Y utility helicopters for the Czech Republic.

They say the two vehicles are almost interchangeable because they share almost 85 percent of their parts.

Bell is also building Vipers for The U.S. Marines and the Kingdom of Bahrain
