The NASA Fundamental Aeronautics Fixed Wing Program is addressing the challenges of enabling revolutionary energy-efficient improvements in transport aircraft. Engineers and researchers are reducing noise while increasing engine capability. Exciting new structural designs and technologies are all part of this program that will effect anyone who flies on future aircraft.
