I was really excited to fly in the Bell 525. It was so stable, smooth and quiet. As a passenger, it felt more like riding in an airliner.

The Bell 525: the Right Aircraft for your Mission

Bell 525 Cockpit

Crew and Passenger Comfort

The President of the Vertical Flight Society said it best: "It was so stable, smooth and quiet". The Bell 525 offers a quiet and smooth ride, expansive baggage bay, and comfortable seat sizing and arrangements so both pilot and crew are focused on their mission.

Reduced CO2 Footprint

The Bell 525 features innovative technology and efficiencies that will deliver a 15% reduction of CO2 emissions per seat mile when compared to the S-92, with a 20 aircraft fleet over 10 years. This results in nearly 17 million less pounds of CO2 per year. This airframe will use 800,000 fewer gallons of fuel per year than the S-92. With sustainability as a priority, the Bell 525 delivers.

Advanced is an Understatement

The 525 is the most technologically advanced civil helicopter ever made. By eliminating mechanical linkages with its fly-by-wire flight control system, and redundancies in flight control computers, independent wire harnesses, heat exchangers and much more, the 525 delivers both advanced technology and component reliability for critical missions. This platform's innovation also allows for future technological development and automation unlike any other commercial platform.
