A s one of the few universities in the nation that has a dedicated flight-test facility, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU), is committed to building its capability to design, build and certify hardware and experimental flying vehicles. Embry-Riddle’s Eagle Flight Research Center (EFRC) is at the heart of this effort. As the university’s flagship aviation research arm, the EFRC has the unique distinction of combining the attributes of a research complex with the capabilities of an aircraft hangar and engine test bed. Home to a cadre of faculty and specialized industry professionals— which includes Designated Engineering Representatives (FAA DERs), Airframe and Powerplant Mechanics, (FAA A&P), Inspection Authorization (FAA IA) and Test Pilots—the EFRC delivers research and development assets for both manned and unmanned aircraft and their approvals, under the strict guidance of the Federal Aviation Administration. With this unique combination of talent and resources to meet the FAA’s stringent safety and engineering requirements, the EFRC is an ideal solutions provider for industry and government partners. In its 6 year history, the EFRC has consistently attracted aircraft certification projects to the state of Florida. Past and present companies that have funded research at the Eagle Flight Research Center include: Airbus, Embraer, Textron (Cessna, Beechcraft, Bell and Lycoming), Rolls-Royce, GE Aviation, Pratt &Whitney, Hartzell, Garmin and Avidyne.
