Excellence In Aerospace Engineering At KU


Lauren Fitzpatrick, of Stilwell, recently landed first place in the 2010 individual aircraft design competition held by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. Fitzpatrick earned first place by using an innovative design with a classic twist to improve business jet travel. The contest challenged students to design a business aircraft that had a large, comfortable cabin and was capable of utilizing relatively short runways. Fitzpatrick incorporated a fuel-storage system known as slipper tanks ? commonly used decades ago, often installed as an afterthought ? and adapted her design to maximize space from the outset and still get the most out of the aircraft.
