The Tiltrotor Test Rig test team at the AEDC National Full-scale Aerodynamic Complex in Moffett Field, California, conducts full envelope evaluation of the first civil tiltrotor system that will be entering commercial usage by 2020. This test was the first use of the TTR and served as checkout and operational verification test of the new $30 million national test capability for future generation tiltrotor aircraft. The TTR is pictured here in the 40-by-80 foot wind tunnel at NFAC. (U.S. Air Force photo)
