2013 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
The presented work considers designing, building and flight testing a solar poweraircraft as a student project. The goal is to allow student to participate in an aircraft projectfrom design to flight test in order to acquire aircraft design knowledge from theoretical andpractical means. A first theoretical part consists of creating a sizing program for studyingdifferent concepts. Then the gathered knowledge will result in the realization of a flyingdemonstrator. This was realized during a student project over a 5 month period
