A Next-Generation Helicopter Approaches First Flight

The future of helicopters is closer than you think — all you have to do is look at the SB>1 Defiant™, a new development from Sikorsky and Boeing.

The futuristic, next generation vertical lift helicopter is closing in on its first official flight. The Defiant is a revolutionary helicopter that can fly at twice the speed and distance of a conventional helicopter and will supercharge the U.S. Army’s Future Vertical Lift program.

The Defiant represents a major leap forward for the U.S. Army’s air combat capabilities — providing safer, faster, and more powerful transport for our men and women in uniform. The Defiant out-performs existing helicopters with an imposing blend of speed, power, and agility designed for success on the 21st century battlefield. America’s soldiers deserve nothing but the best and the Defiant is at the top of its class.
