Pegasus Aircraft use advanced aerodynamics, manufacturing and propulsion to achieve unparalleled results in the aviation industry. By incorporating engine and aircraft manufacturing in one company, it reduces production costs and increases your control over procurement, logistics, management, design and the performance of the final product. Pegasus aircraft are designed to be Mach 2 cruise capable aircraft.
They feature AVEI's proprietary technology which includes the "Manta system" sonic boom reducing technology in addition to our revolutionary pulse detonation turbine design. A separate design class for vertical take-off and landing will be created using AVEIs Shorty, a short, powerful pulse detonation hi-bypass turbofan in the front section of the fuselage. The tri-fan VTOL architecture provides enhanced stability over one and two engine designs.
- Flat fuselage aircraft provide a larger lifting surface or planform area for achieving aerodynamic lift during flight
- Smaller wingspan reduces drag during flight
- "Manta system" sonic boom reducing technology
- Curved winglets reduce drag on the vehicle though reduction of wing vortex forces.
- Engines are mounted on top of wings to reduce noise transmission to ground.
Pulse Detonation Turbines
- Increased survivability with swept fan technology, which protects the engine core from damage due to foreign object ingestion (e.g. birds, hail) by deflecting them to the bypass.
- Increased power and fuel economy
- Noise reduction technology. Our noise reduction technology reduces the sound output of the pulse detonation turbines while maintaining performance.
- Less labor time. A uni-body frame reduces labor time during the construction process through the assembly of less parts.
- Less fatigue. Less welds and joints are needed that are more prone to fatigue because of the single uni-body frame construction technique
- Stonger Aircraft. This type of construction also results in a stronger aircraft.
