CD-ROM Captures a "Legacy" in General Aviation Research

The NASA General Aviation Program Office at NASA Langley and the NASA Langley Technical Library have teamed up to bring the legacy in general aviation to life by producing a prototype CD-ROM that highlights some of the most significant general aviation research. The CD ROM, entitled "Legacy: General Aviation Highlights from 8 decades of NACA/NASA Research," contains the full text image of 179 NACA/NASA general aviation reports (10,000 pages of documentation).

The reports contained in "Legacy" were selected from a survey conducted for the Advanced General Aviation Transport Experiments (AGATE) Consortium. The reports contain information concerning the transferral of existing NACA/NASA technology to the U.S. general aviation industry.

New CD-ROM available through the National
Technical Information Service (NTIS).

"Legacy" permits searching and browsing of the reports by author, title, report number, date of publication, abstract and subject. Paper copies of these reports would cost approximately $3,000. The CD-ROM may be purchased from the National Technical Information Service (NTIS) for $75 (plus a $6 handling fee). See order form on reverse.
