DARcorporation has released Advanced Aircraft Analysis (AAA) Version 3.0.
New features and submodules are designed to heighten the program’s efficiency and precision, including a recalculate feature that allows the user to recalculate data in many modules from one central screen. This cuts the time to analyze changes by 99% compared to previous versions of the software, significantly reducing design cost. All calculated data can be exported to a spreadsheet for selected flight conditions. Trim diagrams are automatically plotted and saved in separate files for ease of comparison.
Other new features include: Center of gravity calculations for major components; power and ground effects can be switched on and off per flight condition; effects of drooped ailerons (flaperons) are accounted for in all aerodynamic and stability and control calculations; propeller power effects are accounted for in trim; and flap and aileron geometry can be plotted in the geometry module
