    21 Jan - You like concept aircraft? VTOL is your playground. See more ideas about Aircraft, Fighter jets and Military aircraft pins.   Plum Brook Station is about an hour away from Glenn. During the summer it was like an oven in the shop and certain parts are hard to come by. It’s been tough work, but I think the end goal is pretty well worth it. Learn more about the testing on the XFVA at Langley in A Unique Facility for V/STOL Aircraft Hover Testing.

    John J. Schneider Historical Achievement Award. Established in , in the memory of vertical flight historian/designer John J. Schneider, this award is given to an individual for distinguished achievement in encouraging appreciation of, and enhancing access to, the history and legacy of vertical flight aviation. The D which received the Army designation VZ-4, was built in It was 32 ft long, had a gross weight of 3, lb, a tandem two-seat cockpit, and a 16 ft wingspan. Each wing ended in eight-bladed 4 ft wide propellers within tilting ducts; they were powered by a single bhp Lycoming YT53 engine.

    With my Test Pilot School education and experience at the naval test center, Douglas Aircraft, Northrop and the U.S. Army, I felt that I was as prepared as anyone to test this new VTOL jet transport concept. I started with flights in the small hover rig, a cruciform gadget with four lift engines to test the control system first flown by Author: Smauro. In addition, Bell built and flew the Air Test Vehicle and X VTOL research aircraft, and was at the mock-up stage for the XF, a supersonic V/STOL fighter that never was built. While the X was to be a research aircraft, it was representative of a possible small V/STOL transport. Thus, it could carry a kg payload and represent a.

Test probe procedures were also established. Static lift and control measurements obtained are presented along with results. A unique facility for V/STOL aircraft hover testing.

The facility allows for both static and dynamic tethered hover test operations to be undertaken with safety.

The installation which consists of the 'Z' system (tether), restraint system, static tiedowns and the control room and console, is presented in detail. Author: R. Murphy and R. Culpepper. NFAC is a unique facility primarily used for determining aerodynamic characteristics of large-scale and full-scale rotorcraft and powered-lift V/STOL aircraft, as well as testing of wind turbines, parachutes, trucks, and other non-traditional types of testing.

A vertical and/or short take-off and landing (V/STOL) aircraft is an airplane able to take-off or land vertically or on short runways.

Vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft are a subset of V/STOL craft that do not require runways at all. Generally, a V/STOL aircraft needs to be able to hover. Helicopters are not considered under the V/STOL classification as the classification is.

In my previous blogs I discussed the early experimental, prototype and operational V/STOL combat jet aircraft such as the Harrier and Harrier II that were developed in the late 's through to the 's. By the 's significant improvements had been made in performance, handling and the weapons load capability of V/STOL combat jets but now stealth.

The Canadair CL "Dynavert", designated by the Canadian Forces as the CX, was a V/STOL turbine tiltwing monoplane designed and manufactured by Canadair between and Only four of these experimental aircraft were built with three entering flight testing.

Two of the CLs crashed due to mechanical failures, with no fatalities occurring in either of the Manufacturer: Canadair. erate a data base for identification of a full- envelope aerodynamic model of a V/STOL fighter aircraft, the YAV-8B Harrier. The flight envelope to be modeled includes hover, transition to conven- tional flight and back to hover, STOL operation, and normal cruise.

The aircraft employs a unique V/STOL design, which places all control for hover and transition in the twin turbofan nacelles.

This decision was a consequence of Ames' experience with low-speed aircraft flying qualities and of the availability of the by foot wind tunnel for low-speed, full-scale aircraft testing.

Wind Tunnel Test Considerations Unique to V/STOL Aircraft V/STOL wind tunnel testing performed over the past several years has been guided largely by the well established practices of conventional low speed wind tunnel : Ernest L.

Black. A vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft is one that can hover, take off, and land vertically. This classification can include a variety of types of aircraft including fixed-wing aircraft as well as helicopters and other aircraft with powered rotors, such as cyclogyros/cyclocopters and tiltrotors.

Some VTOL aircraft can operate in other modes as well, such as CTOL (conventional take-off. For the comparison of the configurations, a test case for a fixed-wing VTOL UAV with 5 kg take-off weight, kg payload and hover time of 60 s is.
