The Sikorski S-97 Raider – Radical Fast Rotorcraft

Sikorski S-97 Raider Ready in 2015

The Sikorski S-97 Raider will begin beating the air into submission in 2015. It will be the only production ready prototype rotorcraft of its kind – a compound-coaxial helicopter which will reach an incredible 275 mph. That’s about 100 mph faster than the proven Black Hawk helicopter.  Check out an S-97 Raider test run from 2011 below. [Video courtesy of Sikorsky].
