New Specification for Performance of Aircraft Capable of Vertical Takeoff and/or Landing (VTOL)

1. Scope

Proposal is for this standard to cover the airworthiness design standards associated with the performance of VTOL capable aircraft.


VTOL; vertical takeoff and landing; airworthiness; aircraft


Because F3179 (Standard Specification for Performance of Aircraft) applies to conventional takeoff and landing capable fixed-wing aircraft only, it is currently anticipated that a new standard specification addressing VTOL aircraft is required. The alternative, would be to revise F3179 to add sections dedicated to VTOL aircraft.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
