Congrats to Mark Drela!

Most sailplane pilots already know of Mark and his accomplishments. For those that do not know of him you should check out his work sometime.

Mark Drela is not from Poland, he is a native of Massachusetts and is a member of my club. Iíve had the good fortune to attend talks on various topics he gave at our club meetings over thelast 20+ years. Bright guy and very friendly.

He has designed many world class competition rc sailplanes, contributed to a rc simulator my club developed, very active in the ESL, in addition to all his professional acedemic work with MIT contributing to full scale aviation and as academic advisor for the MIT team they developed the human powered airplane for the Icarus flight.
