Russian Helicopters Selects Pratt & Whitney PW207V Engine to Power New VRT500 Helicopter


Pratt & Whitney and Russian Helicopters recently announced that the Pratt & Whitney PW207V engine has been selected to power its VRT500 light, single-engine civil helicopter designed by VR- Technologies LLC.


“The PW200 engine family is a highly successful program that has come to power several of the light, twin-engine helicopters around the world,” said Anthony Rossi, vice president, business development and commercial services, Pratt & Whitney. “Having flown more than 12 million hours, it has earned a reputation for exceptional reliability, with mission availability rates that exceed industry benchmarks. We are pleased that Russian Helicopters has recognized the capabilities of the engine for its first single- engine application.”


According to VR-Technologies, once equipped with its PW207V engine, the aircraft will reach speeds of up to 250 kilometers (155 miles) an hour and have a range of up to 860 kilometers (534 miles) with a payload of up to 730 kilograms (1,609 pounds).


“The PW200 engine family has shown itself to be exceptionally versatile in powering a broad variety of missions such as training, cargo, passenger, VIP, emergency medical services and more,” said Rossi. “These are the same types of missions that VR- Technologies envisions for the VRT500.”


“Russian Helicopters and Pratt & Whitney have worked together for many years on the Ansat helicopter engine. Through our joint efforts, we have delivered more than 70 such rotorcraft that currently operate in Russia and are entering the international market. The PW207V is a reliable and highly efficient power plant that support the objectives of VR-Technologies,” said Andrey Boginsky, director general of Russian Helicopters.


“The main component of any operating system is the engine. We are thrilled to announce that our VRT500 helicopters will be powered by PW207V engines that offer a proven track record in safety, reliability, economy, and ease of maintenance, which of course is key for our future helicopter operators,” said Alexander Okhonko, CEO of VR-Technologies.

Bell Boeing Delivers First Modified Osprey for Improved Fleet Readiness


Boeing and Bell Textron Inc. have delivered the first modified MV-22 Osprey to the United States Marine Corps for improved readiness and reliability of the tiltrotor fleet.


The Marines have multiple configurations of the MV-22 aircraft in service. Under the Common Configuration – Readiness and Modernization (CC-RAM) program, Bell Boeing is reducing the number of configurations by upgrading block “B” aircraft to the current block “C” configuration.


“Our first CC-RAM aircraft returning to Marine Corps Air Station New River was a key program benchmark,” said U.S. Marine Corps Col. Matthew Kelly, program manager, V-22 Joint Program Office (PMA-275). “We are excited to see the capability, commonality and readiness improvements these CC- RAM aircraft bring to the fleet as part of the Marine Corps’ V-22 readiness program.”


As a block “B” configuration, this MV-22 was originally delivered to the fleet in 2005. In 2018, the aircraft flew from Marine Corps Air Station New River to the Boeing Philadelphia facility for modernization.


“This milestone marks the beginning of an Osprey evolution,” said Kristin Houston, vice president, Boeing Tiltrotor Programs and director, Bell Boeing V-22 Program. “Through a shared focus on safety and quality, the Bell Boeing team is delivering modernized MV-22 aircraft that are ready to serve our dedicated servicemen and women who rely on this essential aviation resource.”


The next CC-RAM delivery is expected in early 2020.


“We look forward to having the remaining MV-22 block “B” aircraft rejoin the fleet in a block “C” configuration,” said Kelly.


In November 2019, the U.S. Navy awarded Bell Boeing $146,039,547 to upgrade nine additional MV-22 aircraft under the CC-RAM program, with work expected to be completed in March 2022.
