Having flight tested one new air vehicle per year on average since our founding in 1982, Scaled has the experience necessary to provide our customers with the development data they need.

Flight Testing

Experienced Staff and Pilots: Scaled Composites, LLC has an experienced staff of flight test pilots and flight test engineers. Mojave provides us with an excellent flight test environment year round.

Diverse History: Scaled's flight testing experiences are quite broad - ranging from microlights to business jets to transports to fighters to suborbital spacecraft. We have ground and flight-tested the installation and operations of a 25mm Gatling gun. In addition to manned aircraft, Scaled has experience with unmanned aircraft and the associated systems that are required for success. Scaled also has experience in the development of flight simulators, which allow significant evaluations of a design before the first flight.

Comprehensive Data Acquisition: Scaled maintains a comprehensive, state-of-the-art data acquisition capability that includes real-time air-to-ground telemetry capability. Data reduction can be performed in real-time and displayed to the pilots and ground crew. Our system of airborne computers, recorders and transducers combined with ground-based facilities provides complete information to our engineers. Data and reports can be provided to customers in the format they prefer.

Detailed Documentation: Scaled’s documentation of a vehicle’s handling qualities and performance provides our customers with timely design input. In combination with Scaled's high-speed fabrication ability, modifications and re-testing can be performed rapidly.
