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 protected].
