Over 375 V-22 Osprey tiltrotors built by a BoeingBell Helicopter joint venture have logged 500K operational hours in support of U.S. Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force missions.

The joint venture, which sustains V-22 systems through training, data analytics and maintenance efforts, has partnered with the V-22 program office to augment the aircraft's capacities.

“We are committed to providing unparalleled support to our partners by steadily improving Osprey readiness and capabilities now and in the future,“ said Chris Gehler, vice president of Bell’s V-22 Program and deputy program director of Bell Boeing V-22.

Textron noted the joint venture will hand over the CMV-22 Osprey variant to the Navy in 2020.
