Beginning of the aerodynamic testing
16 April 2012

FSUE "TSAGI" has begun preliminary research into the aerodynamic model of the "Frigate Ecojet" aircraft. Taking place in an  aerodynamic tunnel TSAGI, it will determine the basic aerodynamic characteristics.

Research will include a series of preliminary tests around in the pipes WT-106 and WT-102 TSAGI.

The test program includes more than 500 start-ups to determine the basic aerodynamic characteristics, as well as stability and level of control.

Once completed, a certificate of compliance will be awarded along with details around the aerodynamic characteristics. Recommendations will then be provided with a view to optimizing the aerodynamic shape of the aircraft.
