Company launches Bell 525 Relentless super-medium helicopter at Heli-Expo in Dallas

Bell Helicopter announced
the launch of a “super-medium” helicopter, the Bell 525 Relentless
at the 2012 Heli-Expo in Dallas,

“Today, we celebrate with our customers – not only the launch of this
new product – but the result of our collective efforts to define a new
class of helicopter that raises the bar on innovation in the industry,”
said John Garrison, president and chief executive officer, Bell

“The new Bell 525 Relentless is a culmination of our research and
development efforts, which were informed by a representative product
development panel of our customers, including PHi, an industry leader in
helicopter operations. Relentlessly listening to our customers and using their
feedback to provide them with the right product at the right time has been the
winning combination,” he said.

“Having PHi and our other customers engage with us on this unprecedented
new aircraft validates our product development strategies – placing our
customers at the center of everything we do. We appreciate the collaborative
spirit we share with all of our customers who have participated in this
innovative process,” he said.

The new Bell 525 Relentless will be powered by the reliable performance of
world-class GE engines, the GE CT7-2F1.

Capable of carrying up to 16 passengers, the Bell 525 Relentless is designed to
support our customers in various mission configurations including
oil & gas, search & rescue, helicopter emergency medical
services and VIP/corporate transport.
