Valor’s pylon conversion

Bell Helicopter’s V-280 Valor prototype, N280BH, successfully achieved controlled conversion from 95° to 75° pylon and back, allowing for full hover and low-speed-agility manoeuvring. The aircraft will continue ground run testing at the company’s Amarillo Assembly Center, where it will undergo a series of functional tests running all aircraft systems and flight controls in preparation for first flight.
