Powered Lift: Novel GTRI Design Would Let Commercial Jets Use Smaller Airports While Reducing Noise

Research underway at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) could enable fixed-wing jet aircraft to take off and land at steep angles on short runways, while also reducing engine noise heard on the ground.
