ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

The Sikorsky S97 Raider is a high-speed scout and attack compound helicopter based on the Advancing Blade Concept (ABC) with a coaxial rotor system under development by Sikorsky Aircraft. Sikorsky planned to offer it for the United States Army's Armed Aerial Scout program, along with other possible uses. The S-97 made its maiden flight on 22 May 2015.

Sikorsky plans to build two prototypes of the S97 as demonstrators. One prototype (P1) will be used for flight testing, while the second (P2) is planned for use as a demonstrator. The first prototype was planned to fly in late 2013 or early 2014. Sikorsky started construction of the two prototypes in October 2012. In September 2013, Sikorsky began final assembly of the first S-97 following delivery of the single-piece, all-composite fuselage by Aurora Flight Sciences. In February 2014, construction of the first S-97 prototype was one-quarter complete. Simulated bird strikes testing had been conducted on the fuselage at speeds of up to 235 kn (435 km/h; 270 mph), the S-97's expected maximum flight speed. Drop tests were also performed to ensure the fuel tanks' safety in the event of a crash. Sikorsky is exploring civil applications for the S-97, such as transporting personnel between offshore oil platforms.

Sikorsky and partner Boeing are to use the S97's technology and design process as a basis to develop the SB-1 Defiant, a high-speed rigid rotor co-axial rotorcraft, for the army's Joint Multi-Role Technology Demonstrator (JMR TD) program.[15] The JMR TD is the precursor to the army's estimated US$100 billion Future Vertical Lift (FVL) program to replace the UH-60 Black Hawk utility helicopter and AH-64 Apache attack helicopter.

WHY OUR MODELS

Our models are handcrafted by master craftsmen using only the highest grade materials. Each piece is a fusion of art and history, resulting in a museum-quality masterpiece. These models make the perfect gift for aviation enthusiasts, history buffs, military personnel, automobile enthusiasts, or collectors. Most importantly, we offer custom creation services, allowing you to request any model of your choice.

HOW THEY ARE MADE

Each of our desktop models is meticulously hand-carved from reclaimed mahogany and other fine woods by our seasoned model builders. These models are not merely display pieces; they are family treasures designed to be passed down through generations. The craftsmanship and history embedded in our models will surely be appreciated.
We use leftover wood from the furniture manufacturing industry, ensuring that no trees are purposely cut for our wooden models. Our desktop models are crafted to fit conveniently on your desk or bookcase, without adhering to a specific scale. Our highly skilled artists take great care in creating these beautiful replicas to perfection. Due to natural variations in wood color, we cannot guarantee consistent color across all models.
Our models are shipped semi-assembled, requiring some simple final assembly. For instance, airplane wings and helicopter blades need to be plugged in, but no glue is necessary. We stand by the quality of our models and guarantee your satisfaction. If you are not completely happy with your wooden model, let us know, and we will promptly send you a replacement.
