The interesting video in this post features the Sikorsky-Boeing SB>1 Defiant continuing to expand its flight envelope.

Recently taken at the Sikorsky Development Flight Test Center in West Palm Beach, Florida, the interesting video in this post features the Sikorsky-Boeing SB>1 Defiant continuing to expand its flight envelope.

Through sorties each week, executing the mission elements required for Future Vertical Lift, the SB>1 most recently exceeded 100 knots and performed maneuvers at 30-degrees angle of bank.

Being developed for the U.S. Army’s joint multi-role technology demonstration program, this medium-class technology demonstrator will help inform the next generation of military helicopters

The SB>1 Defiant is designed to fly at twice the speed and range of today’s conventional helicopters and offers advanced agility and maneuverability.

Sikorsky, and partner Boeing, are proving the scalability and tailorability of Sikorsky’s Collier award-winning X2 Technology through SB>1 Defiant. Being developed for the U.S. Army’s joint multi-role technology demonstration program, this medium-class technology demonstrator will help inform the next generation of military helicopters.

Sikorsky and Boeing are also partnered on the medium-lift aircraft for the U.S. Government’s Future Vertical Lift program of record.
