Schools Aerospace Challenge winning team

 

Congratulations to ‘Team Wright Flyer’ from 1408 (Dorking) Squadron, Air Training Corps, who won this year’s Schools Aerospace Challenge awards.  The announcement was made at a high-profile ceremony in central London recently.

The challenge is a competition for 16 to 18-year-olds, challenged to submit design solutions to a fictitious, but realistic, RAF Operational Requirement.  Each year, teams from schools, Air Training Corps or other youth organisations, answer a realistic aerospace design challenge set together with the RAF. Shortlisted teams get to experience lots of what the aerospace world has to offer in a five-day Summer School at Cranfield University. www.schools-aerospace-challenge.com
