CAFE est l’acronyme de  Comparative Aircraft Flight Efficiency

Report and Summary

Aircraft Exhaust Systems IV This report summarizes 16 months of study into the improvement of the efficiency, power and reliability of light aircraft exhaust systems.

The EPG and Aircraft Exhaust Systems CAFE studies in to the development of an Exhaust Pressure Graph.

EPG II CAFE looks at some specific exhaust designs

Fuel Handling Safety CAFE’s fuel handling report arose from our own routine handling of aircraft fuel. This report was a study into the dangers of fuel ignition by a static electric charge due to re-fueling via portable containers.

Ignition Dynamics I The first article in a series on the dynamics of ignition

Ignition Dynamics II The second article in a series on the dynamics of ignition

Ignition Dynamics III The third article in a series on the dynamics of ignition

Local Flow I The first article in a series on the controlling local flow

Local Flow II The second article in a series on the controlling local flow

Local Flow III The third article in a series on the controlling local flow

Propless in California A study to confirm zero thrust measurements by flying a Cessna 152 without a propeller

Wax Effects on Drag The CAFE Foundation reports on it’s attempt to quantify the drag reduction due to the effects of a « wax job. »
