Terrafugia is excited to premier the new Outer Mold Line for the TF-X™, the four-seat, vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) hybrid electric aircraft that will make flying easier and safer than ever before.
We are thrilled to share new image and video media that reflect our updated Outer Mold Line (OML) design for the TF-X™, developed in collaboration with Ben Schweighart and Transportation/Automotive Designer Vedran Martinek. Visit our Image Gallery to view our new stills, and watch the new video below.
In addition, a one-tenth scale wind tunnel test model of the TF-X™ has been successfully developed based on the new OML, and is currently on display at EAA’s AirVenture in Oshkosh, WI. The model will be tested at the MIT Wright Brothers wind tunnel, the same tunnel that was used to test models of Terrafugia’s Transition®. The wind tunnel test model will be used to measure drag, lift and thrust forces while simulating hovering flight, transitioning to forward flight and full forward flight.
These new developments represent exciting, significant progress on the path towards the realization of Terrafugia’s revolutionary vision for the future of personal transportation.
