  • ANALYSIS: Bell 525 Relentless cutaway and technical description

    News | 12 Nov 2014 10:30 | Dominic Perry

    ​If everything goes to plan and Bell Helicopter delivers its first 525R Relentless rotorcraft in 2016 to an as-yet unannounced customer, it will mark the end of the first chapter in the battle for market supremacy in the emerging segment for super-medium rotorcraft. Rivals AgustaWestland and Airbus Helicopters have already attained certification of their offerings in the weight class with the AW189 and EC175 respectively, so to some extent Bell is playing catch up. Of course it argues that the 525 will be worth waiting for – offering a higher maximum take-off weight (MTOW), better performance, reliability and, with a cockpit kitted out with the latest avionics and fly-by-wire controls, massively enhanced safety.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Bell-525-Relentless-cutaway-and-technical-description-405541/
