Visiting rotorcraft facilities in Houston, Texas; Mobile, Alabama; Bristol, Tennessee; Lafayette, Louisiana; and Washington, DC, the tour attracted customers in the oil and gas, military, and search and rescue (SAR) industries for its reliability, generous seating for up to 16 passengers and ability to successfully navigate during offshore operations.

A Bell 525 mockup was also on display for the first time at the 2022 ONS Conference and Exhibit in Stavanger, Norway. Show attendees were able to tour the aircraft configured with an oil and gas interior set-up, ideal for customers in the O&G transport industry.
