FALCON AEROSPACE >>CASE STUDY NO.6: BELL HELICOPTER
In 1935, when the company was founded by Larry Bell, their focus was far from vertical take of an landing aircraft. They built fighters for what was then called the US Army Air Corp. But by the early 1940s, Bell saw the future and it was called “the Helicopter”. Today, they are the world’s premier provider of vertical lift aircraft. And their forward thinking and advanced concept were key to the invention of tilt rotor aircrafts like the V-22 Osprey. From our very beginning, we have been an integral supplier of metals to this world leader.
