See you at European Rotors in Madrid, Spain
The NLR team will be visiting this showcase for the European VTOL industry. Please contact us for a meet up in Madrid.
Tiltrotor aircraft combine the benefits of helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft. The tiltrotor is faster than a helicopter in horizontal flight, uses less fuel and is less noisy. It can land and take off vertically, it can be used to provision oil platforms, and it can provide air transport to other less accessible locations. NLR was part of a consortium of European institutes and helicopter manufacturers cooperating on the Novel Innovative Competitive Effective Tilt Rotor Integrated Project (NICETRIP), a program funded in part by the European Union and intended to demonstrate the feasibility of this concept (2006-2014 ).
