A wind tunnel test was conducted in the Langley V/STOL tunnel to define the aerodynamic characteristics of a 1/8-scale twin-engine short haul transport. The model was tested in both the cruise and approach configurations with various control surfaces deflected. Data were obtained out of ground effect for the cruise configuration and both in and out of ground effect for the approach configuration. These data are intended to be a reference point to begin the analysis of the flight characteristics of the NASA terminal configured vehicle (TCV) and are presented without analysis.
