Moog joins Team Valor as flight control system expert

10th October 2013 - 17:11 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Moog has been announced as the newest addition to Team Valor for the Bell V-280 Valor helicopter programme. The company has been selected to design, manufacture and qualify the aircraft’s integrated flight control system, to consist of flight control computers, support software, and flight control actuation.

The V-280 Valor is Bell’s proposed solution to meet the US Army’s Future Vertical Lift (FVL) requirements under the Joint Multi-Role Technology Demonstrator (JMR TD) effort. The aircraft is being designed to double the speed and range of conventional helicopters.

John Garrison, president and CEO, Bell Helicopter, said: ‘Moog is a premier flight control system provider, and we are pleased to team with them on our third-generation tiltrotor – the Bell V-280 Valor. Moog’s experience and innovation helps us deliver the highest levels of maturity and technical readiness required for the US Army’s future vertical lift missions.’

Warren Johnson, president, Moog’s Aircraft Group, added: ‘We have a long history of working with Bell Helicopter and are delighted to be part of Team Valor. We made the strategic decision to align our interests and resources with Bell Helicopter on this key programme 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.’

Additional Team Valor members will be announced in the coming weeks.
