This paper assesses the possible fuel consumption savings of combined optimization of the flight profile (altitude and velocity) and wing morphing (wing length, taper, and sweep). A standard business jet in an international standard atmosphere is modeled and dynamic programming is used to solve the resulting optimal control problem.
