The Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey first flew 30 years ago today on 19 March 1989.
Since, the Bell-Boeing joint venture behind the tiltrotor has produced more than 375 examples, which have accumulated more than 450,000 flight hours, the manufacturers say.
The transport is flown by all American military services except the US Army. 
The US Marine Corps operates the bulk of the aircraft inventory, followed by the US Air Force and the US Navy. 
The USN is in the process of introducing the Ospreys into service and projects an initial operational capability for 2021. 
The Japan Self-Defense Forces also operates the V-22.

Boeing consiglia caldamente di acquistare e ... di farlo al più presto ...

Quote

The armed services should hurry up and order more V-22 tiltrotors if they want them, because the program of record is rapidly being built out and there’s a risk of a break in the production line, potentially higher costs, or closing of the line, Boeing has advised.
“If you want more V-22s, you need to start planning for that acquisition now, ” Rick Lemaster, Boeing director of Global Sales and Marketing, said at a press tour of the company’s Philadelphia plant, where CH-47 Chinook helicopters and V-22 fuselages are built. 
The company is in the middle of fulfilling a five-year multiyear procurement, Lemaster said, and “we’re pretty close to wrapping up our programs of record” for US domestic customers.
If the services want more airplanes, “we need your order by the third quarter of 2020,” he advised. 
But for international customers, they should make their intentions known this summer, because the Foreign Military Sales process needs time to play out.
Any FMS customers would need to have their letter of offer and acceptance in hand by September of 2020, he said.

With its ability to offer bulk discounts to foreign militaries closing within about a year, the Bell-Boeing joint venture that makes and sells the V-22 Osprey hopes to close deals for up to 50 aircraft.
Boeing says that about a dozen prospective customers are on its radar, and it is encouraging them to sign a letter of offer and acceptance (LOA) for the tiltrotor by the third quarter of 2020. 
Prospective customers include Israel and possibly blue water navies that need to resupply ships on long voyages.

Una macchina ancora carica di problemi.

Air Force Special Operations Command’s CV-22 fleet is raising alarm amid low readiness levels and combat availability concerns as it heads into multiple years of upgrades. 
CV-22 readiness keeps me up at night,” Col. Dale White, the Air Force’s program executive officer for intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, and special operations forces, said in a June 19 interview here. 
“It's not what it needs to be. It's a tough platform to maintain.”
The high-demand, rough nature of special operations, and the stress that tilting the iconic nacelles - the giant columns that hold the rotors and allow the platform to take off vertically, then pivot to fly forward - puts on the aircraft and its wiring system are driving down the Osprey’s ability to enter combat.
White declined to provide current CV-22 readiness figures.

A Rolls-Royce un contratto miliardario per la manutenzione dei motori ...

Quote

The United States Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force have signed a $1.2 billion contract with Rolls-Royce for engine maintenance of the Bell-Boeing V-22 fleet.
The five-year contract comes under R-R’s MissionCare services, and will cover the AE 1107C engines that power the tiltrotor fleet.

Con la "configurazione comune" i Marines puntano ad una drastica riduzione del numero delle sotto-versioni del velivolo ...

Quote

Boeing and Bell Textron have redelivered the first MV-22B Osprey to be upgraded under the Common Configuration—Readiness and Modification (CC-RAM) program. 
This initiative seeks to improve the overall readiness and reliability of the Osprey force by reducing the number of “mini-fleets” of aircraft in different standards and configurations. 
At the start of the program in mid-2017 the Marine Corps fleet had around 70 distinct sub-variants with differing maintenance and spares requirements, even within squadrons: CC-RAM was implemented to reduce that number to as few as five.

Quei serbatoi gonfiati sono proprio un cazzotto in un occhio, ma d'altra parte sono in posizione baricentrica, davanti a destra c'è la porta, dietro c'è il vano carrello e il velivolo non è certo un missile con le ali.

Minimo sforzo, massimo risultato.

Ad uso dei VIP ...

Quote

Bell has begun promoting a VIP version of the V-22 tiltrotor it produces in partnership with Boeing, designed for head-of-state transport missions.
To date, the airframer has sold the Osprey solely for military applications, chiefly to the USA, where is it operated by the air force, marine corps and navy; Japan is the only export customer, with an order for 17 examples.
But Bell believes the “versatile” nature of the platform could open additional sales opportunities: “VIP transport is one of many missions the V-22 is capable of for potential customers,” says the airframer.

V-22B ... i primi due esemplari sono arrivati in Giappone ...

Quote

The first Bell-Boeing V-22B Osprey tilt rotors ordered by Japan have arrived in their home country late last week, as the Asian nation continues to grapple with the dilemma of where to base the controversial aircraft.
Two Ospreys with the markings of the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force, or JASDF, arrived at the joint U.S. Marine Corps-Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force base at Iwakuni, near the city of Hiroshima.
The Ospreys, carrying the serial numbers JG-1701 (91701) and JG-1705 (91705), were shipped across the Pacific Ocean on a commercial car carrier to the pier adjoining the air base. 
And according to local media, they will be assembled, checked and test-flown before flying to another location in Japan.

E fanno 400 !!!

Quote

The Bell Boeing V-22 team recently delivered its 400th aircraft, a CV-22 for U.S. Air Force Special Operations Command.
The first production V-22 was delivered on May 24, 1999, and today deliveries occur under the Multi-year Procurement III contract valued at $5 billion. 
That contract runs through 2024 and includes variants for the Marines, Air Force, and Navy, as well as the first international customer, Japan.

Rotola, rotola, rotola ... strada facendo rotola ... 😲

A civilian Twin Otter airplane rolled and crashed into a Marine Corps MV-22B Osprey parked on a ramp at an airfield and caused extensive damage to both aircraft, according to officials and an incident report.
No one was injured in the May 30 mishap at Brown Field Municipal Airport, a San Diego city-run general aviation facility near the U.S.-Mexico border.
The Marine Corps is investigating the incident, which involved an Osprey belonging to Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron (VMM) 163, based at Miramar Marine Corps Air Station in San Diego. 
Marines had been conducting routine training in the area and had parked the Osprey at the airfield. 
“No Marines were present at the time of the mishap,” 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing officials said in a statement to USNI News.

An overseas deployment with Marines is giving some of the Navy’s first crews that will operate its new cargo-delivery fleet of CMV-22B Osprey aircraft hands-on experience with tiltrotor technology and operations.
Ten aircraft maintainers and one naval aviator from Fleet Logistics Multi-Mission Squadron 30 are deployed with Special Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force-Crisis-Response-Central Command 20.2, flying, operating and maintaining MV-22B Osprey tiltrotors in the Persian Gulf region.

The Navy’s next carrier onboard delivery vehicle touched down on an aircraft carrier for the first time last week, the service announced.
A CMV-22B Osprey, assigned to the “Titans” of Navy’s Fleet Logistics Multi-Mission Squadron (VRM) 30, landed aboard carrier USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70) off the coast of California as part of the ongoing workups to get the new CODs ready in time for a deployment aboard the carrier.
