Bell has completely lost their identity. The company is not ran by aviators anymore, just by young kids with degrees that know nothing. It is a shame. Sharp decline fir tge past 3 years. Layoffs have become frequent.
I slow death of the civilian market. 429 mtow problem, 412 not as good as AW139, 407 performance is poor next to Astar. What else is left.....505 let’s hope.
I hope it excels

I think the V-22 is a fantastic helicopter, It is still new technology and I am confident Bell will continue to work through any issues. I also feel they will continue to stay on the leading edge of technology.

Future layoffs are inevitable. Management is always revolving. Many predict Bell will eventually shut it's doors in Piney Flats within the next 5-10years.
