Research Hangar

A DRIVING FORCE FOR INDUSTRY PARTNERSHIP

As home to the Eagle Flight Research Center, the Applied Aviation and Engineering Research Hangar will advance the university’s research capabilities in key technical areas, including:

• Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) and the impact of their integration on the national airspace.

• Eco-friendly alternatives in aviation.

• Aircraft modifications for FAA certification.

• Simulations that model complex aerospace systems, which allow companies and organizations to assess risks and costs and identify new efficiencies in operations. • High-performance software, mobile applications, and user interfaces for the next generation of aviation and aerospace systems. • Secure software development that ensures the safe and secure operation of aviation and aerospace systems.

SERVING THE NEEDS OF INDUSTRY “The capability of the Eagle Flight Research Center to not only develop fundamental technology but to also prototype and flight test is critical to the support of emerging initiatives in aviation. ” — Jack Pelton, CEO & Chairman of the Board Experimental Aircraft Association
