This paper discusses the basic design approach and features of the turbotip lift fan concept, initially developed for application in the XV-5 VTOL research aircraft. Design changes necessary to meet the requirements of the proposed NASA V/STOL transport research aircraft and future commercial transport systems are reviewed. Emphasis is placed on the effects of acoustic, installation, control response and life/maintenance objectives on component design and lift fan geometry.
