AW609 tiltRotor aircraft completes autorotation trials

 This was followed by autorotation trials, which the company has announced were successfully completed earlier this month.

Starting off in 1996 as the Bell/Boeing-developed Bell XV-15, the AW609 tiltrotor aircraft combines the benefits of helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft. AgustaWestland, which took full ownership of the program (and renamed the aircraft the AW609) in 2011, has now announced that autorotation trials carried out between the end of March and early April were completed successfully.
