RAeS International General Aviation Design Competition 2020

The United Kingdom Royal Aeronautical Society in cooperation with Light Aircraft Association announced that Light Aircraft Design Competition is back for a fourth time.

Imagine this: “A hurricane has just swept across the Caribbean island of Dominica, destroying almost all buildings and blocking most roads. Those injured need to be taken to hospitals on neighbouring islands. A vertical take-off, electric aircraft is needed to evacuate them, preferably to those islands that are not already overwhelmed with medical cases. So achievable range is of the essence.”

Terrifying, but completely realistic. Also, it is this year’s RAeS International General Aviation Design Competition assignment scenario. The main task is to develop the aircraft that accomodates a pilot, attendant and strecher case to help with medical evacuation from the affected area. As said, vertical take-off and landing is required.

Competition rules

Entries are invited for this competition from under- and post-graduate engineering students, professionals and amateur aircraft designers. You may enter as an individual or a team – RAeS particularly encourages entries from teams of engineering students.

The entries will be judged by a team of professional aeronautical engineers from the RAeS and the LAA. The winners will be announced at the RAeS GA Group’s Light Aircraft Design Conference in November 2020. Points will be awarded with equal weighting for the mission range achieved and the quality of the design (including innovation and the Design Report). Winners will be announced, and prizes awarded, at the RAeS Light Aircraft Design Conference. This year’s conference will take place on Monday 16 November at No.4 Hamilton Place, London, W1J 7BQ.

Further information about the competition can be found on RAeS’s website.
