Bell Helicopter Textron Inc. (NYSE:TXT) company, has unveiled its vision at the Heli-Expo in Dallas for the future of rotorcraft. The FCX-001 concept helicopter has new technologies to reduce noise, boost safety and performance, and enhance both the pilot and the passenger experience. Bell Helicopter officials call the concept helicopter “a 3D roadmap for delivering safer, smarter, and more efficient rotorcraft solutions.” It was borne out of a “highly collaborative team of problem solvers”. A core group of Bell Helicopter engineers and graphic designers, to address the evolving demands of customers and demonstrating key technologies that revolutionize the pilot and passenger experience, including a new anti-torque system in the tail boom designed to change the safety, noise, and performance parameters of vertical lift aircraft forever.
Hybridized propulsion combines progressive thermal engine cores for the main propulsion, for example, electric distribution and motors to drive the anti-torque system for more control and easier vehicle operations and maintenance.The company is exploring the right combination of material and geometry.
For example, an airframe that is made from advanced viable materials to provide structural performance and offer configurations that our customers desire. In order to provide enhanced situational awareness, visibility, and room. The airframe is also the front line for energy management where it harvests, stores, attenuates, and distributes external energy or system energy not already employed for useful work on the air vehicle. A landing gear with non-traditional geometries that facilitate function when combined with advanced materials and actuation. Morphing rotor blades that allow aircraft to optimize performance in different flight regimes.
A single pilot seat and an entirely new flight deck experience with the pilot controlling the aircraft through augmented reality and an artificial intelligence computer assistance system. A highly modular passenger cabin enhanced with the same augmented reality technology for individualized infotainment to catch up on world news, hold a video conference call, share documents with other passengers, or simply watch a movie or play music to relax.
Bell Helicopter’s President and CEO Mitch Snyder stated during the opening ceremony at HAI Heli-Expo 2017 in Dallas, “For the past 80 years, Bell Helicopter has imagined the art of the possible and brought those dreams to life. Six months ago, we created a dedicated team to focus on emerging technologies and how we could incorporate them into our products. Among that team’s first tasks was to display visually the technologies and innovations that present a roadmap that we envision bringing to market. Being a pioneer in the aircraft industry is in our DNA and we want to share this renewed passion with the world. The FCX-001 points the way for our future – a renewed focus on innovative solutions and technologies. When the time is right we look forward to sharing more of what we’re doing behind closed doors.”
Bell Helicopter Textron Inc., is a producer of commercial and military, manned and unmanned vertical-lift aircraft and the pioneer of the revolutionary tiltrotor aircraft. Globally recognized for world-class customer service, innovation and superior quality, Bell's global workforce serves customers flying Bell aircraft in more than 120 countries.

AIN Online by Mark Huber that talks about how Safran working on a new and larger engine. It was Bruno Even, Safran Helicopter Engine’s CEO who stated that 2016 was a challenging year. The company did well during the beginning of 2016. Here is what Huber said about Safran’s 2016 success.
“These include the Airbus H160 flying for the first time with Arrano engines; first flight of the Russian Helicopters Kamov Ka-62 on April 28 powered by Ardiden 3Gs; the July 27 first of Avic’s AC312e in China with the Arriel 2E; India’s first flight of the single engine HAL light utility on September 16 with the Shakti 1U (Ardiden 1H); and at the end of December, first flight of the Chinese Avicopter AC352, powered by the WZ16.”
Even has speculation that the market will be flat in 2017. However the WZ16 will help. The engine was co-designed and co-produced by Safran’s Chinese part which works with CAPO, Dongan, and Aero Engine Corporation of China. This will have the best in class power to weight ratio, low cost of ownership, and a 10 percent lower fuel consumption compared to others in the same class of engines. The engines will have 1500 to 2000 shp turboshaft.

Contractors has informed the US Air Force that their off the shelf solutions is not guaranteed to meet all their demands that was included in their proposal. This has caused in a suspension of releasing their final request to recapitalize its UH-1N Huey helicopter.
The final request for this month proposal has been prepared already, however the publication of this information was to be postponed till the summer. However the service’s second draft’s release of the request for proposal has been hindered till April 2017 according to the USAF. Having that said, the contract would be awarded in 2018 to deliver the first functioning helicopter in the year 2020.
The USAF has released its preliminary draft of the request for proposal to substitute the Bell UH-1N Hueys from the Vietnam period which called for a completely transparent challenge to acquire over 80 helicopters. However contractors have informed the US air force right after the request for proposal was submitted that it won’t be possible to meet all their maintenance threshold requirements using the available commercial aircraft.
Sikorsky, the manufacturer of the UH-60 Black Hawk could take over the Huey recapitalization since it has become a singular source provider for current requirements according to Helicopter manufacturers in the industry. Previous trials of the contract has reflected a singular source for procuring UH-60M Black Hawks, nevertheless the service has decided to proceed with a conventional fully open rivalry.
For the air force to carry a minimum of nine combat troops in addition to their equipment at a high speed of around 250 km/hr, they must call for the replacement helicopter. Having that said, the US Air Force acquisition chief has stated that the replacement Hueys wouldn’t be necessary to carry over nine troops.
Helicopter Express is the current operator to convert its Bell 407 by replacing the standard engine with Honeywell’s next-generation HTS900 propulsion engine. In early November, company delivered Eagle 407HP and make plans to use the helicopter for firefighting missions throughout the U.S. President and chief operating officer of Helicopter Express stated,
“Upgrading our Bell 407 to an Eagle 407HP will improve our ability to accomplish the most challenging firefighting missions with dramatically increased payloads. The Eagle 407HP powered by Honeywell is set to redefine the Type III class of firefighting helicopters.”
The HTS900 offers a dramatically upgraded performance on the Bell 407. Which gives the operators a faster, more powerful and more fuel-efficient helicopter that is ideal for demanding missions like security and law enforcement, forest management, emergency medical services firefighting and other utility services. The new updated technology includes a dual centrifugal compressor, cooled single-crystal turbine blades, effusion cooled combustor liner and a dual-channel Full Authority Digital Engine Control. Currently the engine generates more than 1,000 shaft horsepower and delivers the lowest fuel consumption and highest power-to-weight ratio of any engine in its class. By using the exclusive Eagle Copters conversion kit the helicopter was converted by Honeywell’s partner Eagle Copters. Stephane Arsenault, vice president, sales and marketing for Eagle Copters explains,
“This particular conversion was extremely streamlined as our production facility is completely functional. The purpose-built facility is housed in our maintenance, repair and overhaul facility in Calgary, Canada. We now have the unique option for customers to bring their helicopter or purchase one already converted. We’re delighted to demonstrate our OEM-level capabilities on the Helicopter Express conversation, which opens the door for us to upgrade engines to the HTS900 on other customer-owned aircraft.”
Eagle Copter also plans to offer conversions in other locations which include Australia and Chile. ASAP Semiconductor are the leading distributor for all aircraft supplies, making it more convenient and cost-effective for customers to upgrade their aircraft.
