Another testimonial from a student participant in the 2011 Helicopter Workshop program:   Dear Professor Gates: I never got to thank you for the wonderful experience I had with the 2011 National Helicopter Workshop, and I apologize that it has taken this long for me to really think about the impact it has had on me.

Prof. Gates and Prof. Wei, Now that conference season is coming to a close, I can finally get a chance to send you guys the proper thank you for the Heli-conference. I know all the students truly enjoyed themselves including myself. Paul was as excited about teaching his course as I was to fly the Schweizer. I know you and Prof. Wei put in a ton of work to make the week turn out the way it did and we all thank you. I’ll be sure to keep in touch and let you know when I send my UAV from New Haven to CCSU. Cheers, Joseph Belter Yale University...
