Abstract : A study directed toward the identification and evaluation of applicable advanced technologies for general aviation was performed. An extensive data base was generated through visits to 31 general aviation manufacturers and 3 NASA research centers as well as through an exhaustive literature search. An evaluation technique was developed which allowed candidate technologies to be ranked according to potential benefit. Finally, design studies were performed for a 6-passenger personal/business airplane and a 19-passenger commuter airplane. The General Aviation Synthesis Program (GASP) was utilized during the design studies for propulsion system and vehicle sizing as well as mission performance analysis.
