Design

The AV24
Clean-sheet design program creating better dynamic stability
New airfoil series developed for increased control and lower drag

Computational fluid dynamics including dynamic stability using USM3D Navier-Stokes.

Finite element analysis completed.  CFR-title 14, subpart 23 using AGATE design allowables.

Preliminary and critical design reviews completed including structural design.

Safety and Performance

Predictable flight characteristics with excellent spin resistance and recovery
Highest IO-360 speed while having a 50 mph stall with standard flaps
