2011 Helicopter Workshop Testimonial- Michael

Posted by on Aug 18, 2011 in 2011, Archive, Helicopter Workshop, News | 0 comments

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...
