Way back when this was still the Bell-Augusta 609 (circa 2008), they pulled one out at the Bell factory in Texas during an ISAP visit.  Was quite the cool looking specimen.  Unfortunately, Bell divested themselves of the project and the two prototypes were sent to Italy for continued development.  It has been reported that customer demonstration flights began taking place in early 2014, and the aircraft has begun the certification process.
