Media Invited to Tour Flight Research Project with NASA Associate
WASHINGTON, April 10, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Media are
invited to join NASA Associate Administrator Robert Lightfoot at 11:15
a.m. PDT Tuesday, April 15, for a brief update and tour of an
aeronautical research project currently underway at NASA's Armstrong
Flight Research Center at Edwards Air Force Base in California.
Lightfoot and media will view the Adaptive Compliant Trailing Edge
(ACTE), an experimental flight research project to determine whether
advanced flexible trailing-edge wing flaps can improve aircraft
aerodynamic efficiency and reduce airport-area noise generated during
takeoffs and landings. Media also will tour the modified Gulfstream
III aircraft that is being used for the project and be briefed on the
progress of this research effort.
During his visit, Lightfoot also will participate in the dedication of
the center's aeronautical test range to Hugh L. Dryden, and talk with
center managers and employees.
U.S. media interested in participating in the ACTE tour should contact
Alan Brown at the Armstrong public affairs office no later than 2 p.m.
Monday, April 14, at 661-276-2665 or email@example.com.
