The Bell 525 Relentless helicopter is equipped with a fairly powerful power plant, consisting of two General Electric CT7-2F1 turboshaft aircraft engines, each of which is capable of developing an effort of 1800 hp, which in turn provides the helicopter with very impressive and acceptable flight performance. The maximum flight speed of an aircraft of this model is limited to 306 km / h, while the maximum flight altitude is 6096 m, which is quite a lot for this type of helicopter.

US aircraft manufacturers do not rule out the possibility that the helicopter may subsequently be used to start and as a military transport aircraft, but, for the moment, to fulfill orders for the civil sector, we are not talking about it.
