VHA Featured In NASA Spinoff 2010 Yearbook

NASA Spinoff 2010Van Horn Aviation’s use of the NASA-developed RC(4)-10 laminar flow airfoil on the VHA 206B/L tail rotor blade was featured in Spinoff 2010, an annual publication highlighting NASA technologies adapted for consumer use. The article discusses the impact of using this airfoil on the performance of the Bell 206, including reduced noise and drag, and includes quotes by VHA President Jim Van Horn who served as an engineer at NASA’s Ames Research Center in the early 1980s.
