The MOU permits the two parties to explore potential opportunities to collaborate and grow the Chinese helicopter market. While specifics are not defined in the MOU, discussion and collaboration could occur in areas such as sales and marketing, service and support, training, reassembly, completions or customizing for Reignwood's approved territory. Contrary to inaccurate media reports, the MOU does not include a commitment for the purchase of additional aircraft or the creation of a Bell Helicopter manufacturing site in China.

"We are pleased that Bell Helicopter and Reignwood have reached an agreement to further discussions regarding growth opportunities in the Chinese market," said Chris Jaran, managing director, China. "Reignwood will serve as a key resource for Bell Helicopter in this region as we continue to grow our global presence."
