LAS VEGAS, March 6, 2013

LAS VEGAS, March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced that
it has been selected by Bell Helicopter to provide the auxiliary power unit
(APU) and environmental control system for Bell's new 525 Relentless
helicopter platform, which is scheduled for first flight in 2014.


The Honeywell RE100 APU provides significant system weight savings over
competing systems. The APU also gives operators the ability to run critical
avionics and electronics systems without turning on the main engine, further
reducing total fuel consumption. By using the RE100, Bell's customers will
realize substantial fuel savings and lower operating costs compared with
competitive systems. Honeywell's AC-5510 environmental control system will
provide heating and air conditioning for the Bell 525 Relentless while on the
ground and in the air.

The Bell 525 Relentless is the newest helicopter being developed by Bell
Helicopter and is designed with an emphasis on passenger comfort, reliability,
fuel efficiency, minimized maintenance costs and other technical features to
ensure the aircraft meets the requirements of long-range and high-payload
missions. Capable of carrying up to 16 passengers, the Relentless is designed
to support customers in various mission configurations including oil and gas,
search and rescue, helicopter emergency medical services, and VIP and
corporate transport.
