Aurora Flight Sciences to supply composite structures to Bell Helicopter's 525 Relentless

Aurora Flight Sciences announced from the Farnborough Air Show that they have been selected by Bell Helicopter to manufacture composite airframe structures as part of the Bell 525 Relentless™ helicopter program.

The composite fairings of the Bell 525's main engine cowling section will be manufactured and assembled at Aurora's Bridgeport, West Virginia facility. Aurora will work directly with the Bell Helicopter team to meet challenging schedule and production rate requirements.

"Aurora is pleased to be a part of the Bell Helicopter 525 Relentless team," said Mark Cherry, Aurora's President and Chief Operating Officer.
