Dear NASA Space Grant Helicopter Program,

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for selecting me to attend the 2011 NASA Space Grant Helicopter Program. The experience was more than I could have expected, and the knowledge that I have retained from this program was very interesting and pertinent to my college major. The information presented in this program was very hands-on. The instructors were very intelligent and had years of experience within their field to share.

One of my favorite parts of the trip was our visit to Kamax and Sikorsky. I have always been interested in helicopter blades, so seeing them manufactured was fascinating. I felt like a child in a candy store where each piece of candy was approximately $20 million.

Thank you very much.

Michael Grotz
