Special Guest Speaker:

Joseph Caravella

Founder of Caravella Aerospace


 

 


This presentation will focus on the key conceptual elements of roadable aircraft design and share the development history of a fixed-wing prototype called the CaraVellair. First, the impact of mission requirements will be discussed. Next, major design and licensing challenges will be presented along with possible solutions. A chronological history of the on-going design, development and testing of the CaraVellair will be presented. The presentation will conclude with engineering lessons learned and a glimpse at future roadable aircraft from Caravella Aerospace.

 

Joseph Caravella Biography

Joseph R. Caravella, Jr., founder of Caravella Aerospace, has always been interested in aviation. He soloed a Cessna 152, designed radio controlled model planes, built a hovercraft, hang gliders and a jet powered skateboard before graduating high school.

He earned BS and MS in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering (AAE) with honors from Purdue University. As an undergraduate, he completed a co-op program at NASA Langley Research Center. As an Andrews and Koerner graduate fellow, his thesis work on radial flow hybrid rocket engine combustion was published by American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) and the Journal of Propulsion and Power.

Joe's 10 year career at Rocketdyne in Canoga Park, California began on the X-33 program as a development engineer for the linear aerospike nozzle ramps, taking that component from initial design through development, manufacturing and hot fire testing. His creativity flourished as a project engineer on smaller programs earning him the 2002 General Managers Award and co-authorship on a NASA technical report. This led to team leader positions for combustion device elements on the RS-83, RS-84 and finally J-2X programs.

In 2007 Joe decided to pursue his passion for aviation - full time. This led to the “affordable roadable aircraft” currently in development at Caravella Aerospace. He has spoken to audiences around the world about the design, analysis, construction and testing of the CaraVellair. The prototype is street-legal and has logged over 300 miles at speeds up to 65 mph including an appearance in an Los Angeles area 4th of July parade.

He is an active member of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and AIAA, and a lifetime member of the Experimental Aircraft Association, currently active in local chapters 1 and 40.
