The Bell 525 is being developed to meet a requirement for a medium lift helicopter. It will be constructed primarily from composites and metal and is to be the first commercial helicopter to incorporate fly-by-wire flight controls, with tactile cues. The system is triple redundant, and is developed in two simulator environments. The 525 will be powered by a pair of GE CT7-2F1 turboshaft engines, with a new composite five-blade main rotor system. The Bell 525 is designed to fit the emerging “Super-Medium” size category suited ideally to support offshore oil and gas operations, with 50% of the customers coming from that sector.
The Bell 525 Relentless, featuring the ARC Horizon flight deck system, provides unparalleled crew situational awareness through the use of a fully integrated avionics flight deck coupled with an advanced fly-by-wire flight control system, resulting in enhanced safety levels and mission capabilities. The Bell 525 is the first commercial helicopter to define the super-medium class by combining best-in-class performance characteristics and passenger amenities with maximized situational awareness of the ARC Horizon flight deck.
Its the first commercial helicopter to incorporate fly-by-wire flight controls, delivering superior handling qualities and increased level of safety through the ability to seamlessly react in austere environments.
Its is the first commercial helicopter to incorporate the Garmin G5000H™, a touchscreen avionics suite, for enhanced situational awareness and improved pilot integration and the first commercial helicopter to incorporate Bell’s LATD™ tail boom technology for improved hover performance.
The Bell 525 Relentless delivers best-in-class cabin and cargo volumes, coupled with flexible cabin layout options, ergonomic and ingress/egress solutions that create a best-in-class passenger experience.The Bell 525 Relentless incorporates an advanced aerodynamic design, a Next Generation GE engine and a rugged airframe, delivering best-in-class payload-range capability to meet mission requirements.
