Variable wing glider

Create/model a variable wing glider that exits/launches from the back of a transport plane. The glider should have variable wing capabilities that allow for faster and longer flight but also, using the variable wing, can land safely at a slower speed. The glider should hold one pilot in horizontal position lying on top (ideally for aerodynamic purposes).



Our mission is to help bring the real-world into the classroom by providing engineering students with practical hands-on experience through industry-sponsored and client-based capstone design projects. Since its inception, the Learning Factory has completed more than 1,800 projects for more than 500 different sponsors, and nearly 9,000 engineering students at Penn State University Park participated in such a project.
