Everything we know about the Army’s new Black Hawk replacement, the Bell V-280 Valor | Task and Purpose

Must Read

The Bell V-280 Valor, which will require years of development, potential business disputes, and billions of dollars, is the Army’s aircraft of the future. 

The Army’s multi-year Future Long-Range Assault Aircraft (FLRAA) competition, which was designed to eventually replace the Black Hawk helicopter used to move troops and supplies across the battlefield, has chosen the V-280 Valor as the winner. The SB-1 Defiant compound coaxial helicopter from Sikorsky-Boeing finally lost out to the V-280 tiltrotor helicopter when the prize was revealed on Monday. The initial contract, for $232 million, is to continue the aircraft’s development; however, it will increase to $1.2 billion and then, potentially, $7 billion to start producing the new Valor aircraft fleet that will start to replace the Black Hawk in the middle of the 2030s.
