Small Airplane Engines Made Smaller, Lighter and Even More Efficient
Working in partnership with Williams International for the turbine engine, and Teledyne Continental Motors for the intermittent combustion (IC) engine, NASA has seen the development of new technologies and manufacturing processes for affordable, environmentally compliant, revolutionary propulsion systems for GA aircraft. The turbine engine development went beyond all expectations set at the beginning of the project. The NASA/Williams partnership developed and demonstrated a turbine engine, the FXJ-2, that weighs less than 90 pounds and is capable of producing more than 700 pounds of thrust (

Air Taxi at Your Service
The EJ22 engine, which has a low noise level, light weight, and low fuel consumption, delivers over 770 pounds of thrust while only weighing approximately 85 pounds. In the past, only the rich and famous may have had access to personal jets designed to whisk travelers from city to city without the inconvenience of crowded major airports. Now, however, with NASA's support and the work of several companies determined to redefine personal air transport, flying direct to nearly any city from the closest local airport may soon become a viable option for everyone. In 1996, NASA initiated a program designed to revitalize the U.S. light aircraft industry through the development and commercialization of more affordable propulsion systems, including turbofan engines. Enlisted through this initiative, known as NASA's General Aviation Propulsion (GAP) program, Glenn Research Center conducted a small turbofan development competition among major U.S. engine builders. As a result, Williams International of Walled Lake, Michigan, won a cooperative research and development program with NASA, and work on the new NASA/Williams GAP engine began. A year later, Vern Raburn, a successful entrepreneur in high technology, sought to apply digital technology; efficient lightweight engines, such as those being designed through the GAP program; high volume manufacturing; and high technology business practices to a whole new type of general aviation company. Raburn met with Dr. Sam Williams, president and founder of Williams International, and created Eclipse Aviation Corporation of Albuquerque, New Mexico, to provide alternatives in air transportation.

27. The GAP Program
General aviation propulsion Program. When you see the words general aviationand propulsion in NASA projects, here's what they're talking about
General Aviation Propulsion Program (The GAP Program) Before we start talking about what the GAP Program actually is we need to define a couple terms. When you see the words general aviation and propulsion in NASA projects, here's what they're talking about: general aviation: This term has to do with airplanes that are owned by people like your parents, doctor, teacher, etc. Smaller, lighter-weight airplanes. These planes can be extremely useful but can also be very expensive. propulsion: Propulsion simply means anything having to do with the engines of the plane.
Question: So what is the GAP Program? Answer: The research conducted under the GAP Program is mainly concerned with reducing the amount of noise, vibration and maintenance needed on the engines in light aircraft. The program is based at NASA Glenn in Cleveland, Ohio. By cooperating with the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) and industry partners, NASA hopes to develop more affordable propulsion systems for light aircraft in order to make the planes more useful to smaller suburban and rural communities. Question: What types of engines does the GAP Program work on?

Revolutionary new aircraft makes debut at Oshkosh airshow
NASA Administrator Daniel S. Goldin today joined Williams International Chairman Dr. Sam Williams at Oshkosh, Wisc., in the debut of the V-JET II, an all-composite, turbofan-powered light aircraft designed for future flight testing of modern turbofan engines. Goldin and Williams were attending the annual Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Fly-In and Convention being held this week at Oshkosh, where the V-JET II is being demonstrated. "The V-JET II marks a turning point in general aviation," said Goldin. "U.S. companies can only regain a leadership position in general aviation by developing aircraft that combine innovative designs with cutting-edge, revolutionary technologies that ensure pilot and passenger safety and increase aircraft performance at affordable costs." Williams added, "Our objectives are to develop the quietest and least polluting propulsion system in aviation as well as the lightest weight turbine propulsion system for manned aircraft. We also expect to be able to price these engines low enough to stimulate the rapid expansion of the light aircraft industry in the United States." Provided by Williams for use in the Agency's General Aviation Propulsion (GAP) program, the aircraft will flight-demonstrate breakthrough, low-cost turbine-engine propulsion systems for light, general aviation aircraft with cruising airspeeds greater than 200 knots.

Cleveland OH 44135 Abstract
T he air transportation for the new millennium will require revolutionary solutions to meeting public demand for improving safety, reliability, environmental compatibility, and affordability. NASA’s vision for 21st Century Aircraft is to develop propulsion systems that are intelligent, virtually inaudible (outside the airport boundaries), and have near zero harmful emissions (CO2 and NOx). This paper reviews future propulsion and power concepts that are currently under development at NASA Glenn Research Center. These include intelligent engines, distributed vectored propulsion, and electric drive propulsion based on Fuel Cell power. During the next decade, the primary focus of gas turbine engine research will be the development of intelligent aircraft engines. These engines will be capable of adapting to changing internal and external conditions to optimally accomplish the mission with minimal human intervention. Some of the key characteristics of these engines include adaptive cycles that self optimize during the flight envelop, active noise and emission suppression, self healing structures, and autonomous operations. The distributed vectored propulsion will replace two to four wing mounted or fuselage mounted engines by a large number of small, mini, or micro engines that will be embedded in the airframe structure. In this concept, distributed exhaust from the wing trailing edge will be vectored for aircraft attitude control, thereby eliminating the aircraft control surfaces. Recent conceptual design studies conducted at NASA Glenn indicate that this concept can help to significantly reduce aircraft noise and fuel burnt.

Airborne Wind Shear Sensors Technology Provides Advance Warning:
A 10-year collaboration among NASA, FAA and industry has developed, demonstrated and implemented the technology for effectively conquering the wind shear aviation hazard. On November 30, 1994, Continental Airlines Flight 1637 became the first commercial flight with an airborne detection system capable of providing pilots up to 90 seconds of advance warning of wind shear activity to prevent future wind shear accidents. Aging Aircraft Studies Help Ensure Structural Soundness: Aircraft aging is a safety concern throughout all classes of aircraft. NASA, in conjunction with the FAA, Sandia Laboratory and the University of Idaho, is developing nondestructive evaluation methods, metal fatigue analyses and structural modeling to help operators ensure that older aircraft are as structurally sound as new ones. NASA is also developing new airframe manufacturing techniques which will add strength to composite materials and monitor the "health" and safety of aircraft structures. Stall/Spin Improvements Slash Accident Rate for General Aviation: NASA's 10-year program to improve the control of aircraft stall and spin characteristics of general aviation aircraft has produced knowledge and techniques which allow development of spin-resistant designs. New aircraft designs are incorporating these technologies to reduce the occurrences of maneuvering accidents which have accounted for a significant portion of past pilot-related accidents. This technology could reduce total general aviation accidents by nearly 20 percent. At the same time, because of these advances, the complex process of aircraft certification has been vastly simplified and the related costs have been drastically reduced.

AGATE Revitalizing General Aviation
"AGATE is visible evidence of the commitments of NASA, the FAA, and the industry and university community to two important endeavors: first, to revitalize U.S. general aviation, and second, to reinvent government along the way . . . The AGATE Consortium represents the dawning of a new era for NASA and industry in terms of the ways we do business together. Together, we are undertaking a challenge neither of us could accomplish apart."
- NASA Administrator Daniel S. Goldin
AGATE Press Conference, July 1995 The challenge for the Advanced General Aviation Transport Experiments (AGATE) consortium is to create a Small Aviation Transportation System (SATS) as an alternative to short-range automotive trips for both private and business transportation needs. For example, using small aircraft would allow business executives to travel to three plants 250 miles apart in a single day-drastically cutting back travel time. The SATS will make many time-sensitive short-haul trips more affordable for business, medical, public safety and recreational pursuits. The creation of the AGATE Consortium in 1994 is changing the face of general aviation-related aerospace. The NASA-led consortium, born out of an effort to stem the gradual decline of general aviation in this country, is playing an instrumental role in the forging of new alliances between government and interested parties, including vital non-profit contributors.

NEWS Pursuing a Fuel-Cell Powered E-Plane
Barry Rosenberg / New York With their worth being proven in the automotive industry, a nonprofit organization intends to employ fuel cells in conjunction with a combustion engine and eventually use fuel cells only to power a new electric airplane. This American Ghiles Aircraft Lafayette III, in front of ATP hangars in Worcester, Mass., will become the E-Plane with eventual ion battery/fuel cell modifications. The E-Plane is a high-speed, all-carbon French DynAero Lafayette III, built and donated by American Ghiles Aircraft of Dijon, France, that is being converted from a combustion engine to electric propulsion in three stages. The first flights, planned for next year, will be on lithium-ion batteries, with the batteries in the wings; the next flights will be powered by a combination of lithium-ion batteries (for surge power) augmented by a fuel cell in the fuselage; and, finally, the aircraft will be powered totally by a hydrogen fuel cell, with a range of more than 500 mi. Developing what it says is the world's first piloted fuel-cell-powered aircraft is the Foundation for Advancing Science and Technology Education (FASTec) and Advanced Technology Products (ATP) of Worcester, Mass., which manufactures high-power auxiliary starting systems for aircraft. They exhibited jointly at the recent EAA AirVenture show in Oshkosh, Wis.
