    AgustaWestland AW609 (V-22 offspring)

    A thread dedicated to the AW609. I've been watching this design for some time now, I believe it offers a lot of important advantages over helicopters in many fields, SAR missions to name but one.

    Latest news:

    Latest price estimates are around $30 million, but I imagine a working production line would quickly boost orders and reduce this number.

    How would such an aircraft compare to traditional helicopters in price, user friendliness and performance?
