Sikorsky is one step closer to first flight of the high-speed S-97 prototype helicopter later this year after passing the power-on milestone in the assembly process.
Activating on board power means the cockpit displays and control display unit have been integrated into the aircraft, the company says.
The first prototype aircraft is now about halfway through the assembly process, Sikorsky says.

It's almost perfect for the Little Bird replacement. Slightly larger, as I think the Little Bird carries 4 instead of 6, much faster, not sure what the noise level will be like. Those Little Birds are damn quiet.
