NASA and the FAA today recognized this and other university student teams for their innovative designs by presenting the 1999-2000 National General Aviation Design Competition awards at a ceremony at AirVenture 2000, the Experimental Aircraft Association¹s Annual Convention and Fly-In at Oshkosh, WI.
