Fast Rotorcraft

Project description

Developing next-generation rotorcraft

Rotorcraft designers always strive to improve payload lifting capability, reduce fuel burn and increase the vehicle’s range. Europe’s Clean Sky 2 programme has planned for two very different types of rotorcraft: a tiltrotor and a compound rotorcraft. With this in mind, the EU-funded GAM-2020-FRC project aims to design, build and fly a novel next-generation civil tiltrotor technology demonstrator. The configuration will include tilting proprotors mounted on fixed nacelles at the wing tips, whose design will minimise rotor downwash impingement in hover and increase efficiency. The project will also develop and test a full-scale flightworthy demonstrator for compound rotorcraft. This new rotorcraft architecture comprises a lifting rotor with two lateral rotors at the tips of box wings, in pusher configuration.
