The Atlanta Chapter of the Vertical Flight Society invites you to take an interactive tour in the Aerospace Engineering Rotorcraft Simulation Lab!
The 2018-2019 VFS-GT chapter elected new officers on September 27th 2018. They are excited for the year ahead. Stay tuned for more information about the chapter events online at this address and on Facebook.
Last Spring, AHS International changed its name to the Vertical Flight Society to “be a more accurate reflection of [their] membership and [their] role in the world”.
The Society has a new logo, and so does the GT chapter! More details can be found online.
Two student teams from GT ranked second for the grad and undergrad VFS student competition “A Reconfigurable VTOL Aircraft”. The challenge, sponsored by the U.S. Army Research Lab was “ to design a Group 3 size unmanned VTOL aircraft that achieves high-speed forward flight (relative to current VTOL aircraft) and efficient hover through the use of novel reconfigurable propulsive and lifting devices.”
The graduate concept “KnightFlyer” and undergraduate design “Helluvacopter” are illustrated here:
Congratulations to all the participants.
More details can be found on the VFS website.
