Bell 525 Relentless resumes flight test program

The Bell 525 Relentless program has resumed flight test activity after receiving experimental certificate renewal from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Bell Helicopter announced on July 7.

“Today we have resumed a key element of the Bell 525 program,” said Mitch Snyder, president and CEO, Bell Helicopter. “Bell Helicopter has worked with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and FAA since the accident [on July 6, 2016] and we are confident in the resumption of flight test activity.”

“The team is focused on certification in 2018 and we are committed to bringing this innovative and high-performing helicopter to market,” Snyder added.

The Bell 525 is the world’s first fly-by-wire commercial helicopter and is designed to operate safely and reliably in austere environments with decreased pilot workload. The aircraft features the first fully-integrated touchscreen avionics suite designed for helicopters, the Garmin G5000H. Best-in-class payload, cabin, cargo volumes and passenger comfort complement the technological advancements on the aircraft.
