RAeS Light Aircraft Design Conference 2015

Swift Aircraft have sponsored the Light Aircraft Design Conference, which will be held on 16th November 2015 and Swift's Dave Stanbridge will be presenting at the event.

The conference programme will provide a mix of practical and thought provoking papers. Topics will include methods for calculating spanwise lift distribution, advances in manufacturing with composites and support for small enterprises.

There will be an introduction to the open source CFD program OpenFOAM and an appraisal of how flight simulators can help in the design process as well as inspiration for innovators in control systems from studies into insect flight. We also move another step forward this year as the CAA’s E-Conditions legislation is launched, making flight testing in the UK practical for small enterprise. 

For more details, visit the Royal Aeronautical Society website, or download the event program.
