Most importantly, the RAH-66 needed to be more survivable than the Army's existing scout helicopters in highly contested airspace, which meant the new Comanche helicopter would need to borrow design elements from existing fixed-wing stealth platforms like the F-117 Nighthawk to defeat air defense systems and missiles fired from other helicopters.
According to the US Helicopter Safety Team, accident rates in general aviation — the type of flight performed by a private individual or company including private charters, as opposed to a common carrier like an airline or some larger charter companies — show that helicopters are actually involved in slightly fewer accidents than fixed-wing aircraft.
Active-duty bomber, fighter, mobility, special operations and combat search-and-rescue fixed-wing pilots whose initial contract commitments expire this year are eligible to receive annual payments of $25,000 for five- to seven-year commitments or $35,000 for eight- to 12-year commitments, according to the service's latest figures provided to Military.com.
