Combining the speed and range of the turboprop with advanced agility greater than a traditional helicopter, the Bell V-280 Valor offers better flight performance and lifecycle sustainability. Hear from Bell’s Master Aviators how this weapon system was purpose built to revolutionize U.S. Army overmatch in multi-domain operations.
Don't let the environment get in the way of your mission success. Tiltrotors provide overmatch in lower tier air domains. Take on any situation with the speed and range of a turboprop aircraft and advanced agility greater than a traditional helicopter.
The Bell V-280 has proven its raw control power in pitch, roll, and yaw maneuvers, performing at the highest standards for agility. Validated by numerous flight tests, the aircraft delivers the transformational agility warfighters need for mission success.
Fixed engine nacelle design means reduced manufacturing costs and better performance, maintainability and sustainability - designed to reduce warfighter workload.
