Bell Helicopter's third-generation tiltrotor, the V-280 Valor, was designed to represent the most operationally effective aircraft for the U.S. Army's Future Vertical Lift requirements.

Bell Helicopter has announced several suppliers for the Bell V-280 Valor tiltrotor helicopter. AGC Composites and Aerostructures, Spirit AeroSystems, and GKN Aerospace will design, develop, and manufacture the over wing fairing, the fuselage, and the V-tail aerostructure and ruddervators, respectively. GE Aviation will team with Bell on the third-generation tiltrotor; and Moog Inc. will design, manufacture, and qualify an integrated flight control system, consisting of flight control computers, support software, and flight control actuation. Doubling the speed and range of conventional helicopters, the Bell V-280 Valor will offer commanders a combat maneuver platform with unmatched operational agility to self-deploy and perform a multitude of vertical lift missions currently unachievable in today's aircraft.
