The Bell 525 is the world’s first fly-by-wire commercial helicopter designed to operate safely and reliably in austere environments with decreased pilot workload. The aircraft features the Garmin G5000H, which is the first fully-integrated touch screen avionics suite designed for helicopters.
One of the unique characteristics of the Bell 525 is the ability to perform CAT-A take-off and landing, to and from a helipad at maximum gross weight. Even in the event that one of the two engines fails, the Bell 525 provides sufficient power to maintain occupant safety while lifting off with a single operational engine. With over 60 helicopters reserved under letters of intent, the Bell 525 is designed to provide operators and end users unmatched situational awareness and the ability to perform a wide variety of missions under challenging weather conditions.
