Aerodynamic and stability analysis of personal vehicle in tandem-wing configuration

The paper presents a concept of tandem-wing configuration aircraft that was a Warsaw University of Technology proposal for the personal air transport system. The project was developed at Warsaw University of Technology, within the PPLANE project (FP7 – Personal Plane: Assessment and Validation of Pioneering Concepts for Personal Air Transport Systems). First, analysis of the general concept, advantages and disadvantages of tandem-wing configuration, and possible application as a personal air transport system vehicle are presented. Next, aerodynamic design is analyzed and dynamic stability is tested. All numerical analyses were made by use of the well-tested professional software for aerodynamic (MGAERO) and stability (SDSA) analyses.
