The 9- by 15-Foot Low-Speed Wind Tunnel (9×15) is the most utilized propulsion acoustic facility of its kind in the world. It is the only facility in the country that can simulate takeoff, approach and landing in a continuous subsonic environment. With the ever-increasing demand for reducing aircraft noise, the importance of the 9×15 is greater than ever. Recently upgraded to reduce noise levels and offer state-of-the-art acoustic capabilities, the facility is a vital part of the nation’s aeronautics research plans.
