Vertical Lift Consortium (VLC)

The Vertical Lift Consortium (VLC) joins industry stakeholders at all levels in collaborating with the Government to speed development of technology and lay the foundation for Future Vertical Lift (FVL) platforms. It allows for the industry’s most creative and innovative minds, using VLC as a conduit, to advance innovative FVL prototype concepts to the benefit of all Government end-users in the most cost-efficient manner. The end result maximizes total FVL system effectiveness for the warfighter and minimizes cost to the Government, while protecting proprietary data of VLC Members.

The VLC vision is to be a cohesive national resource which various Government customers can efficiently access innovative technologies to fulfill critical DoD vertical lift needs, which invigorates the U.S. industrial base, drives innovation, and achieves an international competitive edge.
