Bell Helicopter, a Textron Inc. company, announced today that Moog Inc. will design, manufacture and qualify an integrated flight control system, consisting of flight control computers, support software, and flight control actuation, for the Bell V-280 Valor™.

”We have a long history of working with Bell Helicopter and are delighted to be part of Team Valor,” stated Warren Johnson, president of Moog's Aircraft Group. “We made the strategic decision to align our interests and resources with Bell Helicopter on this key program and believe the Bell V-280 will be the most advanced, operationally-effective vertical lift solution, providing our warfighters an unparalleled combination of range, speed, and combat capability.”

Team Valor is comprised of leading aerospace companies bringing the best engineering resources, industrial capabilities, and critical thinking in the industry to meet the Army's needs. Additional team members will be announced in the coming weeks.

The transformational features of Bell Helicopter's third generation tiltrotor represent the most operationally effective aircraft for the U.S. Army's Future Vertical Lift requirements.
