DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS FOR A V/STOL TECHNOLOGY AIRPLANE

A high speed two-engine three-fan V/STOL airplane was designed to demonstrate and develop the technology for operational V/STOL aircraft having safe engine-out characteristics. Engine-out requirements, integration of propulsion and aerodynamic controls, and propulsion installation are the major factors affecting the configuration. Use of variable pitch fans enhances the control system providing a responsive and versatile airplane.
