Avrocar: um Verdadeiro Disco Voador

Authors: Desire Francine Gobato, Ricardo Gobato, Jonas Liasch

One of the most unusual V / STOL military aircraft programs was the Avro VZ-9 "Avrocar". Designed to be a true flying saucer, Avrocar was one of the few V / STOL to be developed in complete stealth. Despite significant design changes, during flight trials, Avrocar was unable to achieve its objectives, and the program was eventually canceled after spending $ 10 million between 1954 and 1961. Raise data and information related to the Avrocar project carried out during World War II, which was directly linked to the advances of the aircraft that were built after it. Also study the data obtained and correlate them with the turbo fan engines used today.
