In 1985, the wings of a full-scale Cessna 207 aircraft were retrofit with Turbo Wing® Technology.

The plane was flown more than 100 times with significant results. Testing showed that the technology produced:

  • Level flight capability on rotors alone

  • Wing stalling non-existent

  • Lift per-shaft horsepower applied to rotors approximately 120 pounds per shaft horsepower at speeds as low as 30 to 35 mph

  • Excellent stability and control at all speeds, including high "Angles Of Attack" flight.
