The Flight Performance group focuses on advanced and innovative aircraft configurations, novel propulsion concepts, and aircraft engine integration. Our mission is to advance the design of innovative aircraft configurations and propulsion concepts, by exploration of new technologies to obtain novel or improved solutions, advances in flight physics to improve the prediction and simulation of air-vehicle performance, and new methods and tools to improve the quality and effectiveness of the design process. The knowledge and competences within the Flight Performance group are clustered in three key areas: aircraft design & design methodologies, flight mechanics, and propulsion integration.
