Brian & Brandi's RV-10

College Presentation


by Brian Sunday, March 16, 2014

Brandi and I were asked to give a presentation back in October at the college I graduated from, Southern Polytechnic State University, and I realized I never got around to posting about it here. We had so much fun doing this! Here is a flyer from the event. We had about 40 students show up.

 

 

Here are the topics we presented on: 

Warning – This Aircraft Is Amateur-Built

Highlights of building a kit airplane:

Picking a design – google searching

Tooling up – building a shop, workbenches, buying tools

Learning skills – learning to rivet, fiberglass, electrical, mechanical (aerospace engineering aka learn everything about everything)

Accomplishing a dream – building an aircraft

Pulling back on the stick and trusting it was all done right – adventures we have had

What was learned and what we wish we knew – aerodynamics, load analysis, electrical, piston engine, and much more
