Tilt Rotor Aircraft

V-22 Osprey

The V-22 Osprey is a multi-role combat and transport aircraft utilizing tilt-rotor technology to combine the vertical performance of a helicopter with the speed and range of a fixed-wing turboprop aircraft. With its engine nacelles and rotors in vertical position, the V-22 Osprey can take off, land and hover like a helicopter. When airborne, the engine nacelles can be rotated, thus converting the V-22 to a turboprop fixed-wing aircraft capable of high-speed and high-altitude flight.
