Thumbs up NASA working on wake cruising

NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center in California tested new technologies and methods that may help aircraft identify and avoid, or even ride, the wakes created by other aircraft. The Automated Cooperative Trajectories Programmable Autopilot flights, or ACT-PA, involved research flights of a Gulfstream III testbed to research the potential for increased fuel efficiency.
