Fire Scout

A look to the future of Naval Aviation, here is the first autonomous landing of the RQ-8A aboard USS NASHVILLE LPD 13 in 2006. The fire scout has a range of 125 miles with an endurance of about 3 hours. It is a derivative of the Schweizer three-passenger, turbine powered 330SP helicopter. The design was a collaboration of Teledyne Ryan and Schweizer Aircraft with a new fuselage, fuel system, and UAV electronics and sensors. #rq8a #ussnashville #lpd13 #firescout #flynavy #navalaviation #aviationsafari #aviationpreservation #boneyardsafari
