Welcome back to the our channel for an overview of the vehicles and aircraft that keep the US President protected while he’s on the go. The Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey is a multi-role military aircraft, capable of vertical and short-terrain takeoffs and landings. The problem is that this aircraft is extremely dangerous, susceptible to failures and accidents. In addition to the damage it would bro to the White House lawn (including the landscaping changes) and the unacceptable risk factors in the event of an engine failure, the simple truth is the tilt rotor Osprey not necessary for transporting the President. The most common use for transporting the president in a helicopter is to get him from a location that does not have direct access to an airplane to a location that does when ground transportation would be too complicated. That’s why the president takes a helicopter from the White House to the Air Force base now, because traveling by ground vehicle would be too dangerous and too disruptive. The only reason to replace the current helicopter with an Osprey would be to take advantage of the either the expanded range or occupancy the Osprey provides, neither of which is necessary given the risks and other negatives the Osprey comes with. Same reason why the president ride a limo and not a bus.
