Uniflight carried out most of the work in Honduras, while it shipped components to its main facility in Grand Prairie, Texas, US, for the upgrade project.

Bell 412 helicopters are powered by Pratt & Whitney PT6T-3D Twin Pac engines and have wide-opening doors to accommodate a forklift with 2t lifting capability.

The helicopter is also equipped with rupture-resistant fuel cells, energy-absorbing crew seats and collective mounted throttles.
