30th April 2013 - 16:20 GMT | by Tony Skinner in London


GKN Aerospace is in talks with Bell Helicopter and Sikorsky about possible involvement in their bids for the US Joint Multirole (JMR) next-generation helicopter project.

Speaking at a media conference in London on 30 April, Marcus Bryson, CEO of GKN Aerospace and Land Systems, said the company had entered dialogue with both companies about providing its composite technology into the JMR/Future Vertical Lift effort.

GKN already provides the CH-53K aft transition fuselage section, cargo ramp and overhead door structural assemblies to Sikorsky. It was also selected to provide metal and composite structures for the new Bell 525 Relentless medium helicopter.
