This weekend we met to kickoff our integrated propulsion system research program to demonstrate that a small 4-seater rocket plane can take off and land on a runway as safely and reliably as a jet aircraft. This research and development program is the foundation for confirming the jet and rocket engine configuration which can later be scaled up for use on a horizontal takeoff/landing suborbital vehicle.
Follow the blogs as we continue to construct our experimental aircraft while learning and testing numerous jet and rocket configurations. 3D printing, ground test stands, wind tunnels, model rockets, and RC vehicles will be used throughout the program.
