Starship

A subscale version of an eleven-place, twin turboprop, high-performance business aircraft developed for Beech Aircraft Corporation. Scaled was hired to design, build and test an 85% scale demonstrator of the Next Generation Business Aircraft (NGBA). Beech required performance and flying qualities data in a short period of time to support their production go-ahead decision. After a 9-month build cycle, Scaled and Beech flew the first 100 flight test hours in only 35 calendar days.
