NASA is analyzing noise data from recently completed flight trials of a modified Gulfstream III at Armstrong Flight Research Center in California, which could pave the way for the application of noise-reducing technology on future business and commercial aircraft. The tests, which ended in late April, wrapped up a four-year program that initially investigated the aerodynamic efficiency of a shape-changing flexible flap. Over the last two years, NASA has also studied the potential ...
