Bell Helicopter: Changing The Way The World Flies

“The V-280 will be a medium utility, attack, combat search and rescue aircraft. It seats 11-14 passengers, is self-deployable up to 2,100 nautical miles, can lift over 10,000 pounds and cruise at 280 miles per hour. To have that content and capability in the fleet — whether military, international, or commercial — the V-280 will change the way the world flies.”

The Bell V-280 Valor has the capability to transform the battlefield and save the lives of our soldiers, boasting “twice the speed, twice the range of current helicopters.” This next-generation tiltrotor aircraft exemplifies modern technology, its speed, range, payload and operational agility unmatched by any other helicopter platform. Designed to reduce weight and lower total lifecycle and support costs, the V-280 Valor’s mission is to improve warfighers’ battlefield productivity and operational reach. Jeff Josselyn is the leader of the V-280 Assembly Team.
