Das größte Flottenmitglied, der Airbus A320-232 "ATRA" (Advanced Technology Research Aircraft), ist seit Ende 2008 für das Deutsche Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR) im Einsatz.
The Dornier 228-101 serves as a universal flying research platform for various experiments, as there are laminar flow investigation, testing of sensors, validation of flight guidance systems for traffic flow control on ground and in the air, remote sensing, data link tests and many more
Airbus Helicopter EC 135 ACT/FHS
The FHS is a highly modified EC135 helicopter developed by ECD, LLI, DLR, BWB as a test bed for innovative control and guidance systems including in-flight simulation. The original mechanical control system of this EC 135 helicopter is replaced by a full authority fly-by-wire/fly-by-light control system.
Airbus Helicopter BO 105
The BO 105 is used as a research platform with a wide range of applications like analysis of flight characteristics, measurement of noise in special flight procedures, development of pilot assistance systems, tests with external loads and camera platform.
The DR400 is mainly used for towing gliders which are subject of performance and handling qualities evaluation. Furthermore, the DR 400/200R is used as a light transport aircraft and for pilots’ currency training.
Der Discus-2c DLR bedeutet in nahezu jeder Hinsicht eine neue Generation von Forschungsflugzeug in der Kleinluftfahrt. Schon die Strukturbauweise zeigt den Fortschritt: So ist der Discus weitestgehend aus dem heutzutage üblichen kohlefaserverstärktem Kunststoff (CFK) gefertigt. Der Discus basiert auf einem weitverbreiteten Hochleistungssegelflug mit 18 m Spannweite.
DG 300-17 - out of operation
The performance of the DG 300-17 has been accurately measured, so it can be used as a calibration standard for measuring the speed polar of gliders.
Antares DLR-H2 - außer Betrieb
Das Forschungsflugzeug Antares DLR-H2 ist das weltweit erste bemannte und ausschließlich mit Brennstoffzellen angetriebene Flugzeug.
LFU 205 - out of operation
The LFU 205 was one of the first aircraft which was built using a composite structure. Since 1984 the aircraft had extensively been used as a testbed for laminar flow technology at the DLR site in Braunschweig.
ATTAS - out of operation
The flight test bed VFW614/ATTAS is based on the two engine, short haul, 44-seats passenger jet VFW614, which was developed and built in the seventies in Bremen/Germany by the VFW-Fokker company (today EADS). It is mainly used for research on flight guidance systems, electronic flight control systems, UAV applications, wake turbulence and for in-flight simulation.
Gulfstream G550 / D-ADLR
The Gulfstream G550 "HALO", D-ADLR, is a Twin Jet aircraft with a pressurized cabin and the newest member of the Oberpfaffenhofen based fleet. "HALO" stands for "High Altitude LOngrange". Due of its unique modifications and features as well as its superior performance "HALO" is qualified to serve as an ideal multipurpose platform for scientific instrumentation.
Dassault Falcon 20 / D-CMET
The Mystere Falcon 20 E5, D-CMET, is a Twin Jet aircraft with a pressurized cabin. Due to its unique modifications and features the DLR Falcon is qualified to serve as an ideal multipurpose platform for scientific instrumentation.
Dornier DO228-212 / D-CFFU
The Dornier DO228-212, D-CFFU, is a Twin Turboprop aircraft with a non-pressurized cabin. It is mainly used for remote sensing as well as for naval- and atmospheric research.
Cessna C 208B / D-FDLR
The DLR owned Cessna C-208B Grand Caravan, D-FDLR, is a single engine turboprop with a non-pressurized cabin. Due to numerous modifications the aircraft is an efficient low cost platform for airborne research.
