At left is a Computational Fluid Dynamics representation of the Ion 100.
In this image the noteworthy color is red, which indicates low pressure. Low pressure on top of the wing is lift.
Ion's CFD work was performed by David Lednicer.
A view of the wire frame model of the Ion 100.
The wire frame is generated directly from the same solid model we used to cut the plugs and molds.
All of Ion Aircraft's engineering is being done by AirBoss Aerospace of Reno, Nevada. We are very pleased with their work and proud to have them on board.
- Length: 24 feet* (7.3 meters)
- Wing span / LSA wings: 30 feet, 4 inches (9.25 meters)
- Wing span / cruise wings: 26 feet, 10 inches (8.2 meters)
- Cockpit width: 30 inches (76 cm)
*the plane has a 10 inch (25 cm) removable nose cone to allow access to the nose gear and the batteries.
