TLG is unique among aerospace engineering service providers in that we fully support the entire iterative aircraft design cycle. This concurrent team approach can provide overall shorter development schedules, higher levels of optimization with lower development risk, all with direct DER involvement.

A graphical representation of the aircraft design cycle is shown below. The cycle is an iterative process; early in the design phase, a loop around the design cycle may take only a few days or weeks. As the design matures and the detail increases, each additional loop may take months. When all the requirements are met, it’s time to build an airplane!
