CV-22B - Mohave Maude - Aircraft Profile Print
The Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey is an American multi-mission, military, tiltrotor aircraft with both a vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL), and short takeoff and landing (STOL) capability. It is designed to combine the functionality of a conventional helicopter with the long-range, high-speed cruise performance of a turboprop aircraft.
The 412th Test Wing plans, conducts, analyzes, and reports on all flight and ground testing of aircraft, weapons systems, software and components as well as modeling and simulation for the USAF. There are three core components for this mission: flying operations, maintenance, and engineering. CV-22, BuNo 165839, Serial Number 90025, "Mojave Maude" was originally delivered to the United States Marine Corps as an MV-22B. The CV-22B is powered by a pair of 6,200-horsepower Rolls Royce-Allison AE1107C turboshaft engines. It was converted to a CV-22B test article. The aircraft was assigned to the 18th Flight Test Squadron, Detachment1. The conclusion of the CV-22 flight test program occurred in September, 2007.
