Over the next several weeks, engineers will conduct aerodynamic tests on the 15% scale model and the data collected will be used to predict how the vehicle will. The QueSST Preliminary Design is the initial design stage of our planned Low-Boom Flight Demonstration experimental airplane, otherwise known as an X-plane. This is one of a series of potential future X-plane, one of the goals of which is to reduce fuel use, emissions and noise through innovations in aircraft design that depart from the conventional tube-and-wing aircraft shape.
