Lead Participant: Agustawestland Limited

Abstract

HiPerTilt led by AgustaWestland with the University of Liverpool and Bristol will develop world leading aerodynamic models, processes, techniques and new designs/products integral to the design and development of next generation tilt-rotorcraft in the UK. Tilt-rotorcraft offer the potential to revolutionise vertical lift passenger transport by delivering higher speeds, freeing up existing airport ‘regional aircraft’ capacity. These advances will deliver a game changing reduction in design time, an order of magnitude improvement within the UK.
