Bell Helicopter, a Textron Inc. company, will partner with GE Aviation, an operating unit of GE, on its V-280 Valor, a third generation tiltrotor.

The transformational features of Bell Helicopter’s third generation tiltrotor are designed to deliver the best value in procurement, operations and support, and force structure for the United States Army’s Future Vertical Lift requirements. The Bell V-280 will feature increased maintainability and component and systems reliability and will have more than twice the speed and range of previous aircraft.

“GE continues to invest in next generation propulsion technology through the Future Affordable Turbine Engine (FATE) program. We look forward to providing the U.S. Army with exciting, advanced technologies for Future Vertical Lift leading to a robust, durable engine that delivers tremendous performance and superior fuel consumption while meeting aggressive cost targets,” said Jean Lydon-Rodgers, vice president and general manager, GE Aviation Military Systems Operation. Team Valor is comprised of leading aerospace companies to meet the Army’s needs. Additional team members will be announced in the coming weeks.
