It started with a well-defined mission specification and a clean sheet of paper to design the ultimate jet aerobatic aircraft that is compact, ultra-fast, has extreme agility due to breakthrough aerodynamics, is ultra-cost-effective and stylish. Over 16 years of design work has made these goals a reality and will enable a quick-time-to-market with reduced development work. The UJ1672A now needs to fly.
The UJ1672A has been designed with the following characteristics to ensure a safe aircraft design, for the pilot to experience the pure forces of flying, low development time, low purchase, operating and maintenance costs, operate at the absolute top-end of the market and to aid market penetration.
The UJ1672A has been designed per the following flow diagram using aerospace industry design methods. The American federal aviation regulation 23 (FAR-23), American military aviation regulation (MIL-A-8860) and European aviation safety agency 23 (CS-23) airworthiness standards have been utilized throughout the design process.
The forward fuselage shape is unlike anything that has existed before and a significant amount of engineering design work was required to develop this configuration. It is this unique forward fuselage configuration that gives the UJ1672A, its ultra-positive-attributes. Its so groundbreaking that we're unable to disclose it for commercial reasons.
