  • Wings fold for shipboard stowing
  • Telescoping refueling boom.
  • Hydraulic cylinders on either side of the ramp keep the aircraft from tilting back during loading and also lower the ramp slightly during the landing to act as a shock absorbing tall skid to protect the rudders.
  • Elegant streamlined hub greatly reduces drag enabling greater speed and cruise efficiency
  • Advanced Scimitar Props achieve both high static thrust and high speed cruise efficiencies
  • Multi-speed automatic transmission operates props at efficient rpms for both low and high speed flight
  • Reversing props can work as air brakes
  • Wing tailored for cruise efficiency enabled by high lift rotor for takeoff, landing, and low speed flight
