On June 23, 2009, Arthur Rivolo, the principal MV-22 analyst for the Institute of Defense Analyses, testified to the House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Rivolo got right to the point: "This much awaited, transformative aircraft has, in my opinion, turned out to be a disappointment, falling well short of its design goals."

"As an airplane it's quite safe," Arthur Rex Rivolo, an expert on rotorcraft who runs an aerospace corporation in Virginia of the US, said in recent email interviews with Asia Times Online. "But its helicopter role is always very precarious. The shortcomings of the V-22 have to do with the design of the aircraft. The biggest concern over the aircraft is that it has smaller rotors. As a helicopter, that is working very hard to stay in the air."
Rivolo served as the principal analyst for the MV-22 and CV-22 at the Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA), a nonprofit organization paid to do independent research for the Pentagon, from June 1992 to March 2009. He was a pilot fir six years at the US Air Force and 22 years at the Air National Guard. He testified before the House of Representatives in June 2009 on the inability of the MV-22 Osprey to safely autorotate - that is, to conduct an emergency power-off landing by rotating its propellers with the help of the wind, even after all engines become inoperative.
"The aircraft is unable to autorotate," Rivolo said.
Rivolo pointed out the chances of the Osprey's two engines failing in peacetime are very rare, "but if both engines fail, that would be a very serious problem of the V-22.
"The Morocco accident is the classic of [the] V-22," Rivolo said.

"Combat assault, the mission for which the V-22 was designed, remains unproven under realistic conditions," said Rex Rivolo, a former analyst for the Institute for Defense Analyses, a nonprofit that manages three federally-funded research and development centers.

Mr. Rivolo, our pilots don't always fly by FAA rules.
