The Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey is a tilt rotor plane for military use produced by Bell, for the US military.
This aircraft is the result of the program JVX (Joint Vertical-lift Experimental) started in December 1981, launched by the Secretary of Defense of the United States, Frank Carlucci. The contract was awarded jointly to the Bell Helicopter and Boeing Vertol. The need for an aircraft of these characteristics was made by the US Navy and the US Army, who demanded the transportability of 24 soldiers equipped to 370 km away.
The first prototype of the V-22 Osprey aircraft came out officially in Arlington (Texas), May 23, 1988. On 1 December 1989, the Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney decreed the suspension of the entire program, because of the significant increase in production costs. The program was later reactivated and May 2, 2008 there was the first combat mission in Iraq after a semester of operational use mainly in the transport role.
This aircraft is based on the technology and experience of the experimental aircraft Bell XV-15 of 1977. Its engines overhead make it able to make links from helicopter landing places or even parking lots, with the transfer speed of a plane to conventional propeller.
