Strong Aviation of Kuwait has signed a letter of intent with Bell Helicopter for a B525 Relentless. Established in 1995, the company is a private operator headquartered in Kuwait City. The aircraft will be used for corporate transport missions in the surrounding area.

“We are excited to be the first Bell 525 clients in Kuwait,” says aviation manager Salem Safar. “The anticipated performance of the aircraft was key for us. We are eager to add the advanced Bell 525 to our fleet, and are confident it will provide unparalleled value and performance for our clients.”

The Bell 525 is a fly-by-wire commercial helicopter designed to operate safely and reliably in austere environments and with decreased pilot workload. The aircraft comes with G5000H avionics and a fully-integrated touch screen flight deck. Its first flight took place in July and certification is anticipated in 2017.
