The status of the YC-14 program is described in this paper in two respects: (1) progress of the design, development and manufacture of the flight articles; and (2) progress that components of the YC-14 make relative to current goals of the aircraft industry.
Technology areas where the YC-14 has made distinct contributions are described and indications are given as to the relative contribution and the remaining potential for development. Such areas include low-speed aerodynamic development, fuel conservative design, flight controls technology, and design-to-cost techniques. In all cases, criteria for incorporation were based not only on technological merit but also on the requirement of minimum life-cycle cost.
These elements have been incorporated in an operationally capable aircraft that is concluding its manufacturing phase on schedule and is about to begin its flight test program.
