Penn State Students conducted a static wing loading test for a Spirit Sailplane. The testing team had students ranging from freshman to graduate students and utilized sandbags and a crane to generate a testing force akin to 6g. Testing occured at Cato Park, an off-site PSU location. The Zephyr Trike is nearing completion. It is a proof of concept experiment and platform for various components for the Human Powered Aircraft, Zephyrus. The trike will test struction, propeller, and pod components, along with giving students experience in welding and composites. PSU will enter 'Hope of the Jackalope' and 'Penn State Express' this year in AIAA 13th Annual Design/Build/Fly Competition in Tucson, AZ. at Raytheon Missile Systems
