Cover Story (view full-size image): Today's aircraft manufacturers are eager to fulfill the societal demand for greener and more sustainable development and enable more efficient operation of aircrafts. Reducing aircraft weight to improve fuel consumption, however, decreases the velocity at which flutter occurs. Active control techniques can be used to stabilize this phenomenon. A flight control system with a highly flexible flutter demonstrator, developed as part of the European FLEXOP project, includes a baseline controller to operate the aircraft autonomously along the planned flight test pattern, as well as a flutter suppression controller to stabilize the aeroelastic modes and extend the aircraft's operational range.
