In order to respond to the growing need for a reduced environmental footprint of the commercial aviation sector, new aircraft architecture and propulsion technology have become a major focus in the aerospace research field. In this context, many new projects featuring innovative configurations or powertrains, for which light aircraft are under consideration as final products or as small scale test platforms for larger airplane, have taken shape. The assessment of the feasibility of such concepts requires an Overall Aircraft Design (OAD) study at a preliminary stage in order to rule out non-viable design choices and identify key features. Consequently, OAD tools play a key role during the conceptual design phase as they allow to automatically carry out said studies and, using their Multidisciplinary Design Analysis and Optimization capabilities, identify the most likely design. FASTOAD- GA, an open-source extension of FAST-OAD completes the aircraft design techniques from FAST-OAD with general aviation specific models to enable the preliminary sizing of aircraft regulated by the EASA CS-23. This paper presents the FAST-OAD framework, its capabilities, the models added by FAST-OAD-GA for general aviation aircraft sizing and the upcoming changes to model innovative architectures.
