Sikorsky’s X2 Technology demonstrator topped 250 knots true airspeed during a September 15 flight at the manufacturer’s Development Flight Center in West Palm Beach, Fla. The milestone sets a new speed record for a helicopter, breaking the previous X2 mark of 225 knots set in July. The July flight broke a nearly 25-year record of 216 knots set in 1986 by a Westland Lynx 800.
