Company Watch - Sikorsky Aircraft.

New York (AirGuideBusiness - Company Watch) May 30, 2010

Sikorsky on 25 May reached 181kt (335km/h) with its X2 technology demonstrator. It finished the third of four phases of flight-testing that will see the dual counter-rotating rotor pusher flying at speeds up to or greater than 250kt this summer. The twelfth flight test marked the first time the company attempted to slow the main rotor - by around 5% - while flying faster to keep the main rotors from approaching supersonic tip speeds.

Sikorsky reports that its X2 advancing blade concept technology demonstrator has achieved 168kt (311km/h) forward speed, putting the dual counter-rotating pusher-prop compound beyond the typical maximum speed for traditional helicopters and outside the reach of the company's S-76 chase vehicle's 155kt capability.
