Research labs


​Aerodynamics and military aircraft systems research labs represent the new mission of the historic Corso Marche facility. Its latest projects include the Sky-X and Molynx UAV research air vehicles. Its advanced wind tunnel, simulation laboratories, systems and avionics rigs enable Alenia Aermacchi  to perform integration, qualification, flight test preparation and certification processes for all Alenia Aermacchi products. The facility also hosts Eurofighter and C-27J flight simulators and Alenia SIA, the subsidiary specializing in the design, development and support of avionics systems.

Structures, processes, materials and systems labs are concentrated at the Pomigliano (Naples) site. They are now being expanded in conjunction with the Boeing 787, Superjet family and Airbus airliners.
