The Electrically Distributed Anti-Torque (EDAT) tail rotors first flew on the light, twin-engined 429 helicopter in May 2019. The aircraft is being tested at the company’s Mirabel, Canada facility and has about 25h of flight time.
The helicopters are to be operated by the US Marine Corps and are to replace the Sikorsky VH-3D, popularly known by its call sign of “Marine One” when the US president flies aboard.
