The Bell 525: Redefining Helicopter Flight
Bell Textron Inc, a Textron Inc. company, is redefining flight with the Bell 525. This innovative aircraft is faster, more spacious, and is poised to transform how corporations, governments, and private individuals transport people and cargo through its innovative design and technology.
With seating for 16 to 20 passengers, a range of over 500 miles, and a high-performance composite airframe, the Bell 525 will cruise at over 160 knots (184 mph), reaching offshore oil rigs and remote destinations quickly.
Best-in-Class Design: What Makes the Bell 525 Stand Out
The Bell 525 sets a new standard for helicopters. What makes this innovative aircraft stand out?
The Bell 525 was designed for superior versatility and mission capability. The aircraft can be outfitted for offshore oil transport, search and rescue, emergency medical transport, or corporate transport. With its spacious cabin, long range, and high performance, the Bell 525 lives up to its name, ready to take on any mission and match the needs of these Militaries.
A Spacious, Comfortable Cabin
The Bell 525 features a flat floor and 427 cubic feet of cabin space, creating an open, airy feel. Oversized windows let in plenty of light and offer panoramic views. The flexible cabin can seat up to 16 passengers, or be reconfigured for executive transport, emergency medical use, or search and rescue missions.
Twin GE CT7-2F1 turboshaft engines provide a maximum cruise speed of 160 knots and range of 580 nautical miles. The composite main rotor system and canted tail rotor deliver responsive, agile flight. The Bell 525 can operate in hot or high conditions, and offers a crash-resistant fuel system and energy-absorbing landing gear.
Leading Performance: Speed, Range and Useful Load
The Bell 525 sets a new standard for performance by delivering superior speed, range, and payload capacity over other helicopters in its category.
The Bell 525 has a maximum cruise speed of 160 knots (184 mph). Its twin engines provide 1,979 shaft horsepower each, giving it the power to achieve high speeds with ease. The composite main rotor system and streamlined design also enhance the overall aerodynamics and speed performance.
With a range of 580 nautical miles (667 miles) with standard fuel tanks, the Bell 525 can fly farther than comparable helicopters. Its large internal fuel capacity, combined with an efficient engine and rotor system, maximize the distance it can travel on a single tank of fuel.
The Bell 525 has the highest useful load of any aircraft in its class at over 7,500 pounds. This means it can carry more passengers and cargo than other super-medium helicopters. The spacious cabin has room for 16 to 20 passengers in an executive configuration or can be reconfigured for medical evacuation with up to three litters and four medical attendants. The aircraft also has a very large cargo compartment of 128 cubic feet for extra gear and equipment.
Latest Technology Onboard the Bell 525
The Bell 525 is packed with the latest avionics and technology to make your flight experience as advanced as possible.
The Bell 525 features the Garmin G5000H flight deck, providing high-resolution flight displays with interactive maps, traffic, weather, and terrain awareness. The fully customized cockpit is designed to reduce pilot workload and increase situational awareness. The Bell 525 can also be equipped with optional enhanced vision systems to give you a heads up about potential hazards along your route.
Integrated Vehicle Health Monitoring System
The IVHM system actively monitors your helicopter’s components, systems and engines to track the overall health of the aircraft. It detects any decline in performance, potentially identifying issues before they become problems. The IVHM system provides both pilots and maintenance crews critical data to keep the Bell 525 running at peak performance, which helps deliver the lowest Direct Maintenance Costs for operators.
Fly-By-Wire Flight Control System
The fly-by-wire flight control system improves reliability with triplex systems, each fully capable of flying the Bell 525 while eliminating complex mechanical linkages. The fly-by-wire flight system reduces pilot workload with the ergonomic side-stick cockpit control configuration, automatic hover and bank angle hold, collective tactile queueing and single axis inputs through complete control axis decoupling.
Smooth Ride and Passenger Comfort Redefined
The Bell 525 is setting a new standard for passenger comfort and smooth ride quality in its class. Its spacious cabin provides an unparalleled experience for 16 to 20 passengers.
Spacious, Quiet Cabin
The Bell 525 features a cabin over 12 feet long, nearly seven feet high and over four feet wide. Its generous dimensions give all passengers ample head and leg room to sit comfortably for the duration of longer flights. The cabin is also incredibly quiet thanks to advanced noise cancelation technologies that dampen outside noise. Passengers can converse easily without shouting over engine and rotor sounds.
The seats in the Bell 525 are designed with ergonomics and comfort in mind. They provide lumbar support, recline function and extra padding for long journeys. The seating is also highly flexible, with quick-release mechanisms that allow operators to reconfigure the cabin layout based on mission needs. The seats can be moved or removed to accommodate cargo, medical equipment or other payloads when not carrying passengers.
Climate Control System
Passengers stay comfortable in all weather conditions thanks to an advanced climate control system. Individual vents at each seat allow passengers to control airflow and temperature for their unique needs. The system also includes heating for cold weather flights and air conditioning for warm weather.
Low Vibration Levels
Specially designed rotor blades, advanced avionics and a rigid rotor mast all work together to minimize vibration levels in the Bell 525. Passengers experience a smooth, stable ride without excessive shaking or rattling. The low vibration levels, combined with the quiet cabin, seating and climate control system make for an unparalleled passenger experience.
The Bell 525 truly redefines comfort and ride quality for passengers in the super-medium helicopter class. Its spacious, quiet cabin, ergonomic seating, advanced climate control system and low vibration levels provide the ultimate flying experience desired by the most discerning customers.
With its sleek design, high performance specs and innovative safety features, this aircraft is ready to take on any mission. The Bell 525 is an engineering marvel that's built to perform, built to endure and built to serve.
