Abstract
A SYSTEM UTILIZING THE FREE-WING CONCEPT HAS BEEN DESIGNED FOR LIGHT AND VERY LIGHT WING-LOADING AIRCRAFT THAT ACCOMMODATES MODERATE TO HEAVY TURBULENCE WITHOUT TRANSMITTING HIGH GUST LOADINGS TO THE AIRFRAME OR THREATENING LOSS OF CONTROL. THE PROJECT WILL TEST THE SYSTEM IN A RESEARCH VEHICLE APPROXIMATING THE DESIGN CRITERIA SET FORTH IN 14 CFR, PART 103; THE RESEARCH VEHICLE IS UNMANNED.
