Abstract:
This paper describes the results of a study determining the feasibility of a reciprocating automotive engine for the Advanced Flying Automobile (AFA). The use of an automotive engine is brought about by the high cost of certified aircraft engines and the technological gap created over the past 50 years of manufacturing know-how. The research effort compiles knowledge required to convert the Corvette LS1 engine for highway and flight application. This study shows that LS1 engine is practical for the AFA design.
