Bell Helicopter, Meggitt announce cooperative agreement

Bell Helicopter, a Textron Inc. company, announced today that Meggitt Inc. will be providing the fuel system for the Bell V-280 Valor™ . 
John Garrison, president and CEO of Bell Helicopter, says: “We are pleased Meggitt is making the strategic decision to join our growing team of aerospace leaders and help develop our third generation tiltrotor, the Bell V-280. Meggitt will be providing the fuel system for the V-280. Team Valor continues to align interests and resources on this clean sheet design, together delivering technology and innovation that reduces cost, weight and complexity in order to make the next generation of tiltrotor technology more affordable.”

Kevin Shaffer, global marketing director for Meggitt Polymers & Composite, says: “This program allows Meggitt to showcase its ability to design and produce complete aviation fuel systems after a long history pioneering the ballistically-resistant fuel tanks carried by nearly every US military aircraft in service today. Meggitt has a longstanding relationship with Bell and we are delighted to be a part of this vital life-saving program.”

The transformational features of Bell Helicopter's third generation tiltrotor technologies within the Joint Multi Role (JMR) Technology Demonstrator (TD) reduce risk and inform the requirements for the Future Vertical Lift (FVL) program. The V-280 is designed to feature increased maintainability and component and systems reliability, while providing twice the speed and range of the U.S. Army's current fleet. The Bell V-280 Valor will offer commanders a combat maneuver platform with the operational agility and effectiveness to self-deploy and perform multiple vertical lift missions. 

Team Valor is comprised of leading aerospace companies, bringing the best engineering resources, industrial capabilities, and critical thinking to meet the U.S. Army's needs.
