While the V-247 prototype will fit in a prescribed UH-1Y foot print on the flight deck of an LHD-class ship, it can further fold up to ingress and egress a US Navy DDG-51-class hangar (shown). (Image: Bell) The first V-280 flight (shown) was last December. Since then, Bell the development regimen has deliberately quickened. When Mr Flail met with MONCh on 26 September, the first aircraft had logged more than 60 hours of flight time and more than 150 hours of rotor turn time, and had achieved 250kts of true air speed and safely operated at 11,000 ft altitude – among other milestones.
