Aerophilia 2017- A Nat’l Level Aero Modelling Event and Air-Show Concludes

Mangaluru: Aerophilia 2017 saw an interesting workshop on Chuck Gliders and Paper Planes by Ex. Commander P.R.A Narayanan which threw light on the functioning of Chuck Gliders and Paper Planes and various factors to be considered while flying them. By the end of the workshop, students were able to build their own gliders and planes. This was followed by a technical talk by Prof. B N Kulkarni, Er. Rajanikanth Shashtri, Prof. B N Karkera and M R Vasudeva exposing the participants to newer possibilities thus enabling them to broaden their thoughts. In addition to these sessions, Paper Plane and Chuck Glider competitions were organised wherein the young competitors set their creations fly high in the air.
