SJ30-2 High Performance Business Jet Development: A Prototype Based Approach 1999-01-1593
The SJ30-2 is a high performance, entry level business jet with the design goal of offering performance superior to other aircraft in its class. Critical data were obtained and evaluated early in the development program through flight and structural testing of a prototype aircraft. Prototype testing helped to achieve aggressive design goals and minimized potential design changes for the globally located manufacturing team. This prototype based approach reduced the program schedule risk in the production and certification phase.
