V8 - Aero - Product Story

A single platform for testing large commercial aircraft and the full range of business jets

Demand for smaller aircraft for business use has risen considerably in recent years, and most major aircraft manufacturers have begun designing new models to capitalize on the demand.

This trend has created new testing requirements for aerospace test labs, because business aircraft are more than merely a line extension of larger commercial jets currently being manufactured.

Business jets incorporate a different mix of materials than their larger commercial counterparts, making them lighter and stiffer in the air – and more fragile during testing. They also involve shorter, more vertical takeoff and landing trajectories, and are subjected to markedly different physical loads at cruising altitudes. All these nuances require much different loading profiles when testing business jets instead of commercial aircraft.

As a result, test program agility has become critically important for aircraft manufacturers and their suppliers to efficiently meet the testing requirements of both commercial aircraft and all types of business jets. And nobody offers greater flexibility in this regard than MTS testing solutions.

Our best-in-class MTS AeroPro™ test software and control systems are designed to conduct the full variety of tests from a common testing platform, giving you utmost flexibility to efficiently compensate for the different test requirements involved with aircraft of all types and sizes. You can easily scale your program up or down, depending on what type of aircraft you need to test.

This is precisely why MTS solutions are used for testing many of the leading business jet models, including:
- The Cessna Mustang, Eclipse 500, HondaJet and the Embraer Phenom 100 in the very light class
- The Cessna Citation CJ3, Embraer Phenom 300, and the Sino-Swearingen SJ30 in the light class
- The Cessna Sovereign and the Dessault Falcon in the large class

By conducting all your aircraft testing from this single MTS platform, you can optimize test lab efficiency while getting new designs to market faster, allowing you to take full advantage of the new industry demand for small business aircraft.
