  HIAPER Project Office Historical Site

The NCAR G-V flies over the Sierra Nevada mountain range during T-Rex. 2006 heralded the debut of the nation's most advanced research aircraft, the NSF/NCAR Gulfstream V (or GV, formerly referred to as HIAPER).  

This website houses valuable historical information about the intensive, three-year project of modifying this GV business jet into a high-altitude observing platform that will serve the National Science Foundation's (NSF) environmental research needs for the next several decades.

The NCAR G-V is now maintained and operated by the Earth Observing Laboratory (EOL) at NCAR. A new GV site with current information regarding instrumentation and projects will be online November 10, 2006.
