Parametric Analysis of Advanced Technology Applied to a Single Engine Trainer 760459
The potential of applying advanced technology to a single engine trainer configuration is investigated. The analysis is performed in a parametric manner to evaluate the individual and combined effects of various aerodynamic and propulsion technology considerations. The analysis is accomplished using a computerized aircraft synthesis model that simulates the aircraft design and mission. The resulting performance characteristics are compared with a current trainer design to identify the performance improvements or penalties.
