1. Is the CV-22 / MV-22 Osprey classified as a Helicopter, Plane or Both?
  2. If the President had to hitch a ride on one, would it become Airforce One(CV-22) and Marine One(MV-22)?

They are classified as Tiltrotors, which is its own category for all the obvious reasons.

If the President were flying in a Marine Osprey, the callsign would be Marine One. If he were in an Air Force Osprey, it'd be Air Force One.
