Sikorsky S-97 Raider Flies at Redstone

Sikorsky S-97 Raider flies at the U.S. Army’s Redstone Arsenal.

Low, fast, crisp and tight. Army Soldiers got a firsthand look at the S-97 RAIDER® during two exclusive flight demonstrations at Redstone Arsenal. The capabilities on display offered a glimpse at RAIDER X, Sikorsky’s bid for the Future Attack Reconnaissance Aircraft (FARA) program, part of the U.S. Army’s Future Vertical Lift (FVL) effort to revolutionize its aircraft fleet.



Knife-fighters like the Future Attack Reconnaissance Aircraft (FARA) break through anti-aircraft defenses, clearing the way so the rest of the force can follow. RAIDER X ® is the only aircraft designed to survive the future battlefield — and with mission flexibility to adapt even faster than the battlespace changes. Providing unmatched battlefield intelligence and growth potential, RAIDER X ® is the choice between a flight plan and a fight plan.
