Bell/Agusta Aerospace Company (BAAC) is a joint venture formed in 1998 by Bell Helicopter Textron company, and Agusta (now AgustaWestland), who have collaborated on a variety of products dating back to 1952.

History

Bell Helicopter has a close association with AgustaWestland. The partnership dates back to separate manufacturing and technology agreements with Agusta (Bell 47 and Bell 206) and as a sublicence via Agusta with Westland (Bell 47). [ [http://www.helis.com/timeline/westland4.php Westland - Part 4 ] ] When the two European firms merged, the partnerships were retained, with the exception of the AB139, which is now known as the AW139.
