Coming up in the May/June 2019 issue of Rotor & Wing International:
Osprey Turns 30: The Bell/Boeing V-22 Osprey first took flight on March 19, 1989. We chronicle the tiltrotor's journey from first flight, through tragedy and becoming one of the U.S. military's premiere combat aircraft on its 30th birthday.
U.N. Air: Helicopters are a critical piece of United Nations humanitarian and peacekeeping operations--the latter of which employs more than 150 helicopters at a cost of about $750 million annually. We take a look at these helicopters’ service in austere, hazardous environments and the “ship of the line” for U.N. peacekeeping, the Russian Mi-8 transport helicopter.
Data Sharing and Connectivity: Improved cockpit data links, avionics and communications systems are providing pilots with incredibly sophisticated situational awareness, allowing them to operate in environments and conditions that were previously off limits.
