Sikorsky’s S-97 Raider prototype is almost ready for its maiden flight, according to a company executive.
 
The high-tech helicopter was slated to take to the skies last year but its launch was delayed while Sikorsky did further development and testing. The wait now appears to be nearing an end.

Military drone pilots are stressed and overworked for the most part because of crushing schedule and a chronic shortage of trained operators.

EXCLUSIVE: Northrop Grumman unveils new image of its T-X trainer prototype for the U.S. Air Force. The company has set its sights on upcoming Air Force competitions that would give the winners a once-in-a-generation chance to solidify their place in the combat aviation industry. 
Almost all military contractors these days see every competition as a “must win.” And that is especially true for Northrop Grumman Corp. as it makes a big play to join the ranks of Lockheed Martin and Boeing as one of the nation's top manufacturers of combat aircraft.

Congress nearly three decades ago passed sweeping legislation to reorganize the Defense Department in part to impose stricter controls over the military services. Lawmakers at the time were frustrated by the services’ insularity and by their inefficient, unmanageable processes for acquiring weapon systems.

But like other attempts to fix perceived problems in the military procurement system, the 1986 Goldwater-Nichols Act has had unintended consequences that now warrant another reorganization to give the military services back some of their lost power, the Senate Armed Services Committee concluded in its version of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2016.

The Air Force is expected soon to award a multibillion-dollar contract to build a new stealth bomber. But while it waits for the next-generation bomber, the Air Force plans to continue to update its aging aircraft so they can stay in service until at least 2040.
