Project Clean Sky Aircraft Paint Riblet, Corso Magenta participated in European Clean Sky project

From 2011 to 2013, Corso Magenta participated in the Clean Sky 1 project, selected by the European research program H2020.

The objective of the Clean Sky project is to carry out research, with private and public partners, to support an air transport policy that respects the environment to achieve the objectives set by ACARE by 2050 ( Advisory Council for Aeronautical Research in Europe).

During these two years of research, Corso Magenta carried out the RIFPA project (Grooved paint surface manufacturing for aerodynamic drag reduction testing), with the aim of developing a paint coating with “riblet” texturing to reduce aircraft trail.
Tests carried out at the Modane Industrial wind tunnel (Onera) concluded that the use of “riblets” shaped by Corso Magenta reduces contrail by 7% at Mach 0.8.
