Canadian-designed human-powered helicopter wins Sikorsky prize [Video] | Canadian Manufacturing

Toronto-based engineering firm AeroVelo, Inc. has won the vaunted Sikorsky Prize by developing a functioning human-powered helicopter.

Tech Triangle‘s insight:

This is the first time in the 33-year history of the Igor I. Sikorsky Human Powered Helicopter Competition that anyone has actually won it.

“It took AeroVelo’s fresh ideas, daring engineering approach and relentless pursuit of innovation—coupled with more than three decades of advances in structures, composites, computer-aided design and
aeromechanical theory—to succeed in achieving what many in vertical flight considered impossible. We congratulate the Atlas team on its incredible success.”
