*** NOTE ***
The work of this capstone team was acknowledged at the departmental award ceremony. They had already been recognized at the SAE International AeroDesign competition in Texas.
The teamís project placed first or second in three of four possible award categories, including Second place in Best Overall Micro Class. The honours earned the team of Neil Carter, Remi Luong, Avneesh Lalit Hingorani, Mehul Patel and Andre Isber $2,500 in award money.
All of this was managed despite the fact that the aircraft had suffered a major accident just days before the Texas competition and the capstone showcase at Concordia. The team was able to reconstruct the aircraft, which seems to have performed none the worse for the wear.
