2011 Helicopter Workshop Testimonial- Alyssa

Posted by on Oct 4, 2011 in 2011, Archive, Helicopter Workshop, News | 0 comments

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. Since childhood, I have had a passion for art and creativity, and in high school, I gained a love of engineering. While pursuing an engineering degree at my university, I felt aimless, like all the work I was doing was only leading up to a typical engineering job in the industry (no offense intended whatsoever, my personality is a bit strange).

2011 Helicopter Workshop Testimonial- Michael

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. Sincerely, Michael Grotz...

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...
