Bell Helicopter plans Fort Worth expansion

Cessna Aircraft’s sister company, Bell Helicopter, plans to build a new office building and training academy in east Fort Worth and relocate hundreds of employees who now work at Alliance Airport and other area locations, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Bell officials say they will spend around $240 million on the project. It’s part of a larger $1 billion, four-year plan to improve the company’s public face, strengthen its product lineup and install modern machines and technologies for the future.
