The V-22 first flew in 1989, and began flight testing and design alterations the complexity and difficulties of being the first tiltrotor intended for military service in the world led to many years of development.
The Osprey is the world's first production tilt rotor aircraft, with one three bladed prop rotor, turboprop engine, and transmission nacelle mounted on each wingtip. For takeoff and landing, it typically operates as a helicopter with the nacelles vertical and rotors horizontal.
