Description: The Bell Helicopter V-280 Valor is a Joint Multi-Role (JMR) technology demonstrator (TD) developed under the US Army's Future Vertical Lift (FVL) program. The V-280 Valor is a third generation tiltrotor aircraft developed by Bell Helicopter and delivering unparalleled speed, range and agility over the battlefield having twice the speed and range of conventional helicopters. The Bell V-280 features triple redundant fly-by-wire flight control system, conventional retractable landing gear and two six-inch large side doors for rapid ingress/egress of troops. The rotorcraft will be powered by two General Electric T64-GE-419 engines. Bell Helicopter plans to use a version of the Future Affordable Turbine Engine (FATE) in the production version of the Valor. The US Department of Defense Future Vertical Lift (FVL) initiative will form the basis for the replacement of 2,000 to 4,000 medium-class utility and attack helicopters.
