Gryphon

Busi­ness jet con­cept air­craft

Gryphon is a con­cept of next gen busi­ness jet air­craft. The idea was to cre­ate an air­craft with remark­able design. The air­craft is pow­ered by two tur­bo­fans mount­ed on pylons above the fuse­lage. It has a retractable tri­cy­cle land­ing gear with both sin­gle wheeled main and nose land­ing gear. Gryphon has canard wing con­fig­u­ra­tion with spe­cial shaped fuse­lage design. In the lift­ing-canard con­fig­u­ra­tion, the weight of the air­craft is shared between the wing and the canard. It has been described as an extreme con­ven­tion­al con­fig­u­ra­tion but with a small high­ly loaded wing and an enor­mous lift­ing tail which enables the cen­tre of mass to be very far aft rel­a­tive to the front sur­face.
