Rugged Airframe Construction

The Bell 525 Relentless airframe delivers rugged dependability through an optimized usage of metal and composite structures:

  • Optimized usage of metals and composites keep the max gross weight of the aircraft under
    20,000 lbs.
  • ARC Horizon® flight deck provides health monitoring and flight
    plan optimization.
  • Optimized center of gravity provides indiscriminate loading capability.
  • Designed with MSG-3
    maintenance standards.
  • Live-mount rotor system reduces aircraft vibration and associated wear and tear.

Advanced Aerodynamics

The Bell 525 Relentless uses advances in aerodynamic design to deliver speed, range and handling performance:

  • Airframe and propulsion systems delivering 155kt speed (287 kph).
  • Smooth lines and wrap-around windscreens for reduced drag.
  • Modern airfoil-designed blades.
  • Next Generation tail boom design
    and construction.

Five-Bladed Rotor System

The Bell 525 Relentless incorporates a
five-bladed, fully articulated, flaw-tolerant main rotor hub that delivers low vibration, high durability/damage tolerance:

  • A modern airfoil design.
  • Bird strike tolerance.
  • Reduces track and balance due to repeatable contour and high
    torsion stiffness.
  • Full de-ice capability.
  • Blade-fold kit available.

Next Generation Engine

The Bell 525 Relentless incorporates the General Electric® CT7-2F1 engine, providing the propulsion power to deliver best-in-class performance:

  • Full authority digital
    FADEC-equipped.
  • Inlet Particle Separator
    (IPS)-equipped.
  • Self-contained oil cooling system.
  • Side-by-side installation attached to main rotor gear box.

Advanced Tail Boom Construction

The Bell 525 Relentless anti-torque system is comprised of a four-bladed, soft-in-plane tail rotor and Bell’s LATD™ tail boom design, featuring:

  • Modern airfoil-designed blades.
  • Bird strike-tolerant blades.
  • Anti-ice capability.
  • Next Generation tail boom design
    and construction.
