All-carbon Construction – Less weight and a stronger airframe means both greater performance, more fuel carry AND enhanced safety for beginning and advanced pilots. The empty weight of all-carbon Corvette is 2,500 pounds less than the metal Texan II – while being substantially stronger. This means that Corvette puts its engine power into payload and performance – instead of hauling around an extra 2,500 pounds of airframe.
P-51 Derivative Computer Design – Corvette is a computer-optimized P-51 instead of a 1980s PC-9 airframe design, that was copied by most of the light attack aircraft of the last 40 years. The Corvette's aerodynamics yield excellent speed and range performance benefits – superior to other legacy light attack aircraft, especially the Textron Texan II and Embraer EMB-314.
All-carbon Construction – In the last decade, the technologies to support pilot training, counterinsurgency, light precision weapons, and ISR data-gathering have changed dramatically. But aircraft performing these missions have not. 40-year-old “Light Attack” designs have simply grown heavy and very expensive. Further, the maintenance costs and limitations of corrosion and metal fatigue are clear.
CorVette CLA restores “Light Attack” strategies,tactics, low-cost and flexibility – and – the ability to perform multiple missions with one aircraft. Matching a high-performance all carbon airframe with any of several different engines yields a remarkable range of mission capabilities. In addition – the strength, wide operating envelope, and adaptability of all-carbon air frames provide operators with greater flexibility, lower operating and maintenance costs, and value – to perform introductory pilot training, advanced pilot training, ISR with 2,000-mile range, and high-performance ground attack – with conventional or precision weapons.
We are a consortium of high-performance engineers, pilots, former military, materials specialists, international public affairs, and trade executives – who have organized around the remarkable airframe of a racing airplane and have worked new technologies and modifications to create Corvette CLA – the future of high-performance and affordable Training, ISR and Light Attack.
We do not hard-sell decades-old bent-metal designs at absurd prices. We don’t have to cover the high overhead costs of Washington lobbyists, marble and chrome office buildings, and pay CEOs millions of dollars to manage Wall Street expectations. We simply want to focus on customer expectations. What is your mission? Let’s us help you achieve it.
Our customer focus: We can match any one of five different engines to meet your mission requirements. No other company will do that for you. To escape ground fire, do you want to climb away at 10,000 fpm? For maritime patrol, do you want to fly 2,000 miles on a single tank of fuel? For counter insurgency, state-of-the-art sensor systems and conventional or small precision weapons? A new USAF- modeled virtual reality pilot training system? We can do these all these tasks for customers and at a fraction of what the large global aerospace companies charge.
