DEADLINE UPDATE: Aeronautics Competitions for College Students
The Fundamental Aeronautics Program of the Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters announces a new aeronautics competition for college students for the 2007-2008 academic year.
College students are invited to design the next generation, 21st-century, “DC-3”-type aircraft. Some of the design considerations include reduced environmental impact, reduced noise, daily operations on short runways, cost analysis for production and operation, passenger and cargo limits, structure and materials, and engines. Students should also briefly describe three valid scenarios for potential use of this vehicle in the year 2058. Final entries are due April 30, 2008.
