Speaker for Wednesday Nights SBSS Meeting - Bob Parks Human Powered Flight and Other

July 11, 2012 Saratoga Fire Station 7:30pm (Business Meeting at 6:30pm).

At this weekend's Tomcats Air Show you may have seen Bob Parks fly his own rocket glider design, the Aerotech Phoenix. Several years ago Bob Park gave one of SBSS's most interesting talks on his design work on the Daedalus Human Powered Flight project. His aircraft broke many human power flight records and made the mythical human powered flight from Crete to Santorini a reality in 1988. We are very fortunate to get an updated talk on this topic that he recently at Stanford. He may also give us updates on his other past projects including consulting with NASA and his work on unmanned aircraft. Our business meeting will begin at 6:30pm, July 11th at the Saratoga Fire Station, but Bob's talk will start sometime after 7:30pm.

See you there, Kyle
