It’s episode 2 of Defense Daily’s new podcast series, THE BUSINESS END, and we’re talking Future Vertical Lift, or FVL — one of the U.S. Army’s six top modernization priorities, through which the service hopes to replace its entire fleet of aging helicopters with faster, more survivable modern variants.

John Robinson is joined by Dan Parsons, who previously worked as Defense Daily’s Army reporter and now runs sister publication Rotor & Wing International. John and Dan discuss the different pieces of the FVL project — What’s FARA? FLRAA? — and the companies embroiled in the competition. It’s an episode of THE BUSINESS END you won’t want to miss.
