Aerodynamics is integral to the design of Entecho’s advanced flight technology. Detailed knowledge of the behaviour of air flow within our lifting system allows us to make informed design decisions. Consequently, we are able to improve lifting efficiency, increase control authority and ultimately work towards achieving our target flight performance characteristics. Moreover, aerodynamic study provides us with an understanding of how our craft will move through the air, whether it is in hover or with some velocity.
Entecho’s aerodynamic knowledge is largely acquired through Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis, test rig validation and further consultancy with expert aeronautical engineers.
