Orlando, FL – November 30th, 2020 — Team AVT has been selected by Bell Textron Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, to develop the Training System Requirements Analysis (TSRA) for the Bell V-280 Valor tiltrotor as part of the U.S. Army’s Future Long-Range Assault Aircraft (FLRAA) competition that enables the Army to project power beyond what the enduring fleet is capable of in support of the maneuver force. 

“As a former Bell employee, this win is special for me personally. I cut my teeth at Bell when I was first getting started in the Simulation industry and now absolutely thrilled to be back helping them again.”

Founder and CSO Robert Abascal said.

The V-280 is next-generation tiltrotor aircraft designed and tested to meet the demands of Multi-Domain Operations by delivering warfighters’ revolutionary reach through speed and range well beyond the enduring fleet. Bell’s flight testing since 2017 has proven the V-280’s capabilities in the air and provides a model for rapidly reducing risk and fielding a new aircraft.
