Development Continues In The Air And On The Computer
Representatives at Melbourne, FL-based Advanced Aero tell
Aero-News the company recently made its first flight of the new
Inverted V-Tail Technology Demonstrator aircraft.
"The airplane performed very well, confirming that the design
delivers superior ground and flight handling along with the benefit
of jet-like smooth and efficient low drag characteristics,"
announced Joe Gagliano, Program Manager and Test Pilot.
In addition to gathering actual flight data from their
technology demonstrator aircraft, Advanced Aero has also continued
to develop Computer Aided Design (CAD) models of the production
aircraft, starting with the fuselage and wing center section
As the engineering team approach an upcoming critical design,
review further refinement will include pilot and maintenance
feedback based on operating and servicing their Technology
Demonstrator, SN 0001.
The aircraft was also recently featured at the Sebring Sport
Aviation Expo (file photo, top).
