Paper Title: 
1454. Grumman's Forward Swept Wing Feasibility Studies and X-29A Technology Demonstrator
Year: 
1982
Paper Number: 
1454
Abstract: 

Although employed occasionally in the past for aerodynamic and configuration purposes, the advantages of forward wing sweep have not been exploited up until now because of the potential for structural divergence. Advanced composite materials have opened the door to the use of forward swept wings in modern combat aircraft without excessive weight penalties. Grumman’s X-29A Technology demonstrator program will lead to a 1984 first flight of an aircraft incorporating forward weep and other advanced technologies.
