TLG Aerospace Presenting at AWS Manufacturing and Industrial IoT Web Day

TLG Aerospace is excited to present at Amazon Web Service’s Manufacturing and Industrial IoT Web Day on July 22nd. The subject of our presentation will be regarding how TLG Aerospace has leveraged automated design exploration and optimization as well as scaling-up industrial CFD simulations with Simcenter STAR-CCM+ in the AWS cloud.

The presentation will include Siemens discussing the software STAR-CCM+ and TLG’s Senior Aerodynamics Engineer, Peter Burns, discussing how we leverage both STAR-CCM+ and AWS to help with computing large databases.

We will also explore how CFD is maturing to the point where is can be used to complement wind tunnel testing and how this can be practically applied. For example, increased throughput in CFD allows TLG to approach wind tunnel testing with advance knowledge learned from simulations while also providing a more detailed level of diagnostic flow information. Because of advancements in technology, this is now both time a cost competitive with wind tunnel testing. To sign up for the virtual event, please find the link below.

Computational Fluid Dynamics at TLG

TLG Recognized by AFA as the 2019 Aerospace Company of the Year

TLG Aerospace was honored to be recognized at this year’s Aerospace Future’s Alliance (AFA) Aerospace Summit as the 2019 Aerospace Company of the Year. The award was presented by AFA President and CEO Emily Wittman, for both excellence in engineering and community service. AFA was formed in 2006 to provide a single voice for policy issues affecting the industry and advocates for over 1400 companies through out Washington State. The Summit included speakers from industry leaders such as Boeing, Blue Origin, Space Flight Industries, AeroTEC and numerous representatives from the Washington State Legislature.

Engineering Excellence
In her award presentation, Emily Wittman remarked that “TLG provides a high standard of excellence across multiple engineering disciplines”. TLG’s team of 40+ aerospace engineers and four in-house DER’s have experience working with over 100 companies across a wide range of platforms of aircraft and space launch vehicles. The team has worked on numerous challenging programs and has used those experiences to continually improve and develop cutting edge tools and methodologies.

Community Service
TLG was also recognized for helping collect toys for AFA’s Christmas STEM toy drive last year. The toys were collected at the TLG office on Westlake Avenue in Seattle, before being loaded into an old fire truck and donated to community organizations such as Communities in Schools and the Birch Creek Youth Center.

Paris in the Summer

TLG Aerospace is excited to announce our team will be heading to the 53rd Paris Air Show this June 17th through the 23rd. Traveling to the show will be our Director of Engineering (FAA Flight Analyst/Flutter DER) Robert Lind and our Director of Program Management, Steve Nelson.

TLG will be exhibiting with the Washington State Pavilion (Hall 3) in the USA Pavilion as a part of showcasing our state as a U.S. leader in aerospace engineering excellence.

TLG’s expertise with four FAA DER’s and an experienced leadership staff with more than 150 years of collective experience is always looking forward to new programs and providing critical engineering analysis from aerodynamic concept development through FAA and EASA Certification. TLG will be looking forward to connecting with industry innovators, aircraft developers, and especially with startups exploring new aircraft designs and OEMs considering their next major modification.

Dating back to 1909, and now with over 140 aircraft expected to be exhibiting, the “Salon du Bourget” promises to bring together all the major players from across the industry. So, while the team can’t wait for the flying displays and to try the VR in the Paris Air Lab, we also look forward to meeting you and helping your company succeed on your aircraft development programs.

This year’s show is sure to be a whirlwind of fun, discovery, and building new relationships with potential industry partners. If you will be attending the show and would like to connect, please come visit with us in Hall 3, Stand A82 or reach out to Steve Nelson at

TLG Aerospace Featured in Siemens Case Study

TLG Aerospace is proud to be featured in a case study by Siemens. Using the Siemens Simcenter STAR-CCM+ software, TLG was able to eliminate some testing requirements by utilizing CFD data, save certification costs, and reduce cost per simulation.

“We can now bid on projects that have greater scope, be more competitive, pass on the savings to our customers and do much more with our dollar,” says Andrew McComas, TLG Engineering Manager.

Real World AWS Scalability

Amazon Web Services (AWS) features TLG benchmark data in recent article.

Amazon Web Services Features TLG in Case Study

TLG Aerospace is proud to be featured in a case study by Amazon Web Services (AWS). TLG is leading the aerospace industry by utilizing AWS HPC resources to quickly run CFD jobs using >1,000 cores for models exceeding 100M cells.

“Using AWS, we aren’t limited in our ability to scale STAR-CCM+ jobs,” Engineering Manager Andrew McComas said. “We have the opportunity to go much bigger if we need to, and we will be prepared for very large computational fluid dynamics projects now. That’s important for us, because that’s the way the industry is headed.”

TLG Assists in Certification of XCub

Cub Crafters unveiled the XCub on June 6, its second certified aircraft. The XCub combines the classic cub design with today’s technology and comforts, making it faster and more enjoyable to fly than ever before.

Cub Crafters unveiled the project with Part 23 certification in hand, making the XCub immediately available to adventure seekers.

TLG Aerospace assisted in the certification process of the XCub, providing flutter analysis, ground vibration test, and flutter flight test support for the project.

The XCub is the fastest Cub ever, able to reach top speeds of over 150 miles per hour. The aircraft also has a range of close to 1,000 miles, marking a giant step forward in the evolution of the cub series.

Cub Crafters was founded by Jim Richmond in 1980 as a way to restore Piper Cubs. In 1999, Cub Crafters began designing new planes, going on to produce seven different cubs.

TLG is an aerospace engineering services company that specializes in full vehicle analysis and optimization including static and dynamic loads, flutter, stability and control, aerodynamic design, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis, airframe stress analysis and design, FAA certification and aircraft performance and handling qualities. Our engineers have experience with over 100 aircraft models from more than 40 different manufacturers.
