Abstract : An interim test-bed aircraft, the Marvelette, was built to evaluate functionally the compatibility of the various features of the Marvel design (boundary-layer control, cambered wing, ducted propeller, fiberglass structure). Also, the Marvelette, designated XAZ-1, will provide information for the refinement of the Marvel de sign and be a readily available laboratory for exploration of low-speed aerodynamics in flight. Pilot evaluation and flight data on the Marvelette are presented for the first ten aircraft checkout flights.
