Abstract

A flying wing personal aerial vehicle (PAV) is designed using a co-flow jet airfoil (CFJ); it is designed to take-off and land on regular roads and highways, at take-off speed of 60mph. The advantages of using CFJ throughout the entire PAV are the enhanced lift/stall margin and thrust generation. It has a targeted range of 500miles, at a cruise mach number of 0.3 at an altitude of 10,000ft with a payload of 3 passengers. The aspect ratio achieved is 2.5 with the addition of an elliptical wing to increase the wing span of the PAV. The mass flow of the jet that covers the surface of the wings needed is of 19kg/s, requiring a power of 684hp (510kW) to pump the jets to such mass flow rate. Given these conditions, the CFD analysis is still in progress.
