Bell Helicopter has signed a teaming agreement with Rolls-Royce for the development of an optimised propulsion system and continued risk reduction efforts aimed at the V-280 Valor and V-247 advanced vertical lift platforms.

The collaboration will focus on the integration of Rolls-Royce’s advanced propulsion systems into future Bell aircraft.

Bell will lead the design, development and production of advanced vertical lift systems, and Rolls-Royce will provide its technical expertise in propulsion systems to provide potential customers with tested, high-performance solutions.

Keith Flail, VP of advanced vertical lift systems at Bell Helicopters, said: ‘The goal of this collaboration is to further enhance the performance and affordability of our aircraft. Future vertical lift programs bring revolutionary solutions for warfighters; Bell and Rolls-Royce are focused on delivering those capabilities.’
