Aeolus – 2014


With a sum of dimensions that does not exceed the 175 inches permitted by the rules, Aeolus had a maximum payload of 28.4 pounds. The team, led by Sabrina Watelle, also had the challenge of taking off in less than 200 feet and unloading the cargo bay entirely in less than one minute. Aeolus was a monoplane high-wing with an H-shaped empennage and a nose that opened up to the cargo bay.
