The osprey has now passed the 100k flight hour mark and racked up both the lowest cost per seat mile and the least mishaps for a marine rotorcraft.

The Marines need four Ospreys to move all the troops and their gear, as compared with 16 helos; that means a cost of $296 million for the V-22s as compared to $488 million for the helos; the Osprey crew costs are $5 million, compared to $21 million; the Osprey doesn’t need a forward refueling point or security, but the helos do, so the Marines factor a cost of $15 million; but the Ospreys’ operation and sustainment rate is “.23,” as compared to “.14.” Bottom line: According to Masiello’s chart, the Osprey costs $301.2 million, as compared to $524.1 million for the “utility helicopter.” The conclusion: “Utility helicopter alternative is 74 percent more costly than V-22.”

Limited numbers is all I could find, so I guess enough to equip 1 or 2 squadrons

Osprey is now being used by the various high ranking vips.Defense Secretary Panetta just used one for some of his 9/11 trips,and special VIP mod kits were apparently ordered in july to dress up and make them more comfortable for passengers.They might even end up on the presidents new fleet of transports planned for about 2017.

Canada is "investigating" buying some osprey for its search and rescue program.One major block at the moment is they cant afford them.

Word has leaked out that a new osprey is already in the works,with a very tentative service entry target of 2025.Talk is of a new rotor and "wing" design,and additional rotors, bringing a large increase in power.
