Statement on V-22 Return to Flight Clearance

24-004 | March 8, 2024


Effective March 8, 2024 (U.S. EST), Naval Air Systems Command has issued a flight clearance for the V-22 Osprey thereby lifting the grounding. Return to flight timelines after the issuance of flight clearance for the V-22 are based on operational requirements unique to each service and mission profile. V-22 aircraft will only operate after all maintenance, safety and procedural changes have been implemented. The timeline for the resumption of flight operations of V-22 operated by U.S. Forces and JGSDF in Japan continues to be closely coordinated between the Government of Japan and the Government of the United States.
