BELL V-280 VALOR PROTOTYPE ACHIEVES 100% COMPLETION

Bell Helicopter is making exceptional progress on the V-280 Valor program and has achieved 100% build completion on the prototype aircraft. The team is now preparing for initial ground run at the Amarillo Assembly Center.
Bell Helicopter leads the industry with combat-proven tiltrotor technology, and has invested in the future of military rotorcraft with its next generation tiltrotor.

This is a clean sheet tiltrotor, applying lessons learned from previous generations of tiltrotor to create groundbreaking simplicity and deliver transformational, affordable technology to alter the course of vertical flight.

We remain focused on providing exceptional flexibility in an advanced aircraft with reduced weight, complexity, and cost that offers the military with unmatched range, speed and payload capabilities on the battlefield.

We will have more updates on the platform soon and remain excited for first flight this fall.
