US Army Keeps FLRAA Costs and Risks Under Wraps
Ahead of a FLRAA contract award to Bell or a joint Boeing and Sikorsky team, the US Army has decided to keep manufacturing costs and programme risks confidential.
The US Army has revealed that manufacturing costs and programme risks associated with its Future Long Range Assault Aircraft (FLRAA) effort will not be made public.
Instead, those details are to be kept confidential to ‘maintain the integrity’ of the competition, according to FLRAA project manager COL David Phillips.
