EUFAR, being a user-driven project, aims at:
Within EUFAR, access is offered to 23 instrumented aircraft ranging from an ultra-light aircraft carrying few kilograms at a low speed (ENDURO), to a 4 turbo-jets aircraft carrying several tonnes of instrumentation payload(BAe-146).A total amount of 450 flight hours will be funded by EUFAR, corresponding to about 44 user groups each flying 10-flight-hour projects. Before being offered funded flight hours, applicants must satisfy some Eligibility Criteria and pass the Selection Procedure.Priority is given to new inexperienced users and researchers from countries which do not operate similar infrastructures.The competition is open from April 2005 to 31st December, 2007, but with potential flying opportunities until 30th September 2008.
DLR offers access to its two research aircraft Falcon 20 and Cessna 208.
A new proposal continuing EUFAR will be prepared within 2007.
