Human-Powered Gossamer Airplane PresentationHuman-Powered Gossamer Airplane Presentation

The Aero Club of Northern California is hosting a luncheon at Michaels at Shoreline featuring Dr. Morton Grosser, who will present on the Gossamer Airplane Project. The luncheon is open to the public; membership in the Aero Club is not required. RSVP with your menu choice of Cobb Salad, Chinese Chicken Salad, or Baked Cannelloni. Cost is $20 per person, pay cash or check at the door. According to Dr. Grosser, "The story is simple: Three teams totaling 44 people (about 20 team members per plane, with many overlaps) designed, built, and flew six 100-foot wingspan airplanes for two new flight regimes in five years. They won the two largest prizes in the history of aviation and several medals, invented many of the carbon-fiber construction techniques used today, wrote widely-cited technical papers, published three successful books, and made three movies which won, respectively, an Oscar, an Emmy, and the Golden Eagle at the National Film Festival." Come join us for this informative event!
