The Aerowing-class is a Starfleet runabout actively serving aboard Federation starships and installations during the latter half of the twenty-fourth century.

General Overview

The Aerowing shares many systems with the similar-sized Danube-class runabout from which it was derived. A streamlined hull and large, reinforced wings make the Aerowing make it more efficient at atmospheric maneuvering. Its hybrid, microfusion and electo-magnetic driven airflow coil engines give it a four-hundred fifty percent increase in atmospheric flight and hover endurance over standard shuttlecraft. The craft is also equipped with a variety of sensor arrays for planetary surveys or reconnaissance.

The success of the Aerowing led to the design of the more advanced Waverider-class shuttlecraft currently deployed aboard Nova-class starships.

Technical Data

Physical Arrangement

The Aerowing Runabout docks to a bay in the ventral surface of the Intrepid-class and Luna-class saucers. This craft is also capable of operating independently for a period of several weeks.
