April 26--CAMP FOSTER, Okinawa -- No injuries or damage were reported after a U.S. military tiltrotor aircraft made an emergency landing Wednesday afternoon in Kagoshima prefecture -- the third such incident in the past week, officials said. The MV-22 Osprey from Marine Corps Air Station Futenma's 1st ...
The Marine Corps is now arming its Osprey tiltrotor aircraft with a range of weapons to enable its assault support and escort missions in increasingly high-threat combat environments. Rockets, guns, and missiles are among the weapons now under consideration, as the Corps examines requirements for an "all-quadrant" ...

The US Marine Corps is turning some of its V-22 Osprey tiltrotor aircraft into gunships armed with missiles and guns. Some weapon systems like Hydra 2.75inch folding fin laser guided rockets and different types of machine guns have already been tested as a proof of concept. Armed V-22s could support ...
All of the four major helicopter manufacturers are developing other vertical-flight aircraft. Bell and Airbus are both developing autonomous, electric air taxis, pursuing urban air mobility as major cities look to new means of reducing congestion. Leonardo and Bell are both developing new tiltrotor aircraft.
The Bell V-280 Valor is an advanced tiltrotor developed for the U.S Army's Joint Multi-Role Technology Demonstration, a precursor to the Future Vertical Lift program. The V-280 first flew Dec. 18, 2017. Bell aims to achieve a speed of 280 kt. with twice the range of a comparable medium-lift helicopter.
William E. Cobey bought Transcendental Aircraft in 1952 and developed the Model 1-G single-seat tiltrotor under an Army/Air Force contract. The centrally mounted Lycoming O-290 piston-powered 1-G crashed as a result of pilot error in 1955, but not before flights had taken place where the prop-rotor drive ...

While the reasons for the initial delay in the deployment of the CV-22 were never made clear, the Osprey tiltrotor has proven to be a controversial subject in Japan going back to its first arrival with the US Marine Corps (USMC) in October 2012. National media has highlighted the perceived poor safety ...
The V-22 Osprey is a tiltrotor aircraft that combines the vertical takeoff, hover and vertical landing qualities of a helicopter with the long-range, fuel efficiency and speed characteristics of a turboprop aircraft. The Okinawa-based Ospreys have been successfully utilized for humanitarian assistance and ...
A defense source told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday that Israel will likely decide in the next year or two to purchase the V-22 Osprey tiltrotor aircraft. Israel first expressed interest in Boeing's V-22 Osprey tiltrotor aircraft in 2012, and two years later the US Department of Defense notified Congress about its intention to sell ...
Both the Joint Multi-Role (JMR) demonstrators competing for FVL, the Bell V-280 Valor tiltrotor (already flying) and the Sikorsky-Boeing SB>1 Defiant compound helicopter (not yet) are assault aircraft with room for 12 to 14 heavily armed passengers. Sikorsky's earlier, smaller S-97 Raider is more in the light ...

Italian manufacturer Leonardo, meanwhile, is preparing to launch a truly revolutionary tiltrotor aircraft -- the AW609 -- that combines some of the characteristics of airplanes and helicopters. On the other side of the Atlantic, Sikorsky is working on the new presidential helicopter -- the VH-92A -- while Bell ...
JACK GUEZ/AFP A US army Sikorsky CH-53E Super Stallion (C) from the Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron (VMM) is seen during the joint Israeli-US military "Juniper Cobra" exercise at the Tze'elim, March 12, 2018. JACK GUEZ/AFP A US army soldier of Battalion Landing Team takes part in training ...
Bij de aEro 2 is, net als bij de V-22 Osprey en AW609 TiltRotor, sprake van vleugels die kunnen kantelen. Per vleugel worden twee elektromotoren voorzien. Mocht een motor uitvallen, dan kan de tweede tijdelijk het dubbele vermogen leveren. Volgens Dufour kan het toestel zelfs met een enkele motor nog ...
It seems the world will have to wait just a little bit longer until the first commercial tilt-rotor helicopter achieves entry-into-service status. In February, Leonardo Helicopters Managing Director Gian Piero Cutillo revealed that an internal review of the program had prompted the company to adjust the time line for ...
Era Group has emerged as the launch customer for the Leonardo Helicopters AW609 tiltrotor, with an initial firm commitment for two aircraft for delivery from 2020. Configured in a nine-passenger layout, the tiltrotors will be used for a range of applications, including utility and offshore transport, search and ...
Leonardo Helicopter's new managing director, Gian Piero Cutillo, shed new light on several of the company's ongoing programs and his outlook for the company on Monday night at Heli-Expo 2018. Of prime interest was the AW609 civil tiltrotor, now entering its third decade of development. Offshore ...
A little more than eight months before the NTSB issued probable cause for the fatal 2016 Bell Helicopter 525 prototype crash, Italian investigators issued a final report for the fatal 2015 Leonardo AW609 prototype crash. Although the fly-by-wire tiltrotor program's progress was slowed because of those ...
On that concrete ramp, the V-280 Valor tiltrotor started its engines for its first ground tests, with engineers monitoring every possible parameter to be sure each system in this one-of-a-kind prototype is working properly. When fully operational, the V-280 Valor should offer double the speed and range of the ...
Leonardo has pushed back the timeline for the certification of its AW609 civil tiltrotor by another year in a bid to further mature the aircraft. Gian Piero Cutillo, managing director for Leonardo's helicopter business, said recent internal reviews into the Italian manufacturer's programs had prompted him to push ...
