Building on Successful Historic Work

Tilt Wing aircraft designs such as the XC-142 AND CL-142 have been successful for over 50 years

New Technologies

  • Use the new technologies of Distributed Electric Propulsion ( DEP) and Digital Flight Control ( DFCS) to overcome the complexity in these earlier tilt wing designs
  • Use modern but proven power plants , systems and crashworthiness concepts
  • Design incorporates Reliability Centered Maintenance with systems and structures monitoring concepts to limit operating costs
  • Designed using modern design and simulation tools and process
