NASA uses Tecnam P2006T to test Electric aircraft

Post by LUFTY » Wed Mar 18, 2015 7:42 am

Researchers hope to fly a piloted X-plane within the next couple years after removing the wings and engines from an Italian-built Tecnam P2006T and replacing them with an improved version of the LEAPTech wing and motors.

Using an existing airframe will allow engineers to easily compare the performance of the X-plane with the original P2006T.
