Experimental Aircraft Program

BAE Systems: “The Experimental Aircraft Programme, the EAP, was the technology demonstrator which 'gave birth' to the technology behind our Typhoon jet. Built by ourselves in the 1980s, it was the most advanced fighter aircraft ever built, and brought together technologies never seen before to make it an aircraft which was ahead of its time. It began life in May 1983, when our predecessor company - British Aerospace signed a contract with the British Government for its development. The programme was for a one-off research aircraft to test pioneering technology aimed at creating an advanced fighter aircraft.” Learn more at http://www.baesystems.com/enhancedarticle/BAES_165232/experimental-aircraft-programme
