Congratulations to Ph.D. candidate Jessica Jones and Professor Carlos Cesnik for receiving a Bronze Award from the Royal Aeronautical Society!

The award honors the paper “Preliminary flight test correlations of the X-HALE aeroelastic experiment”, a paper on-HALE, an experimental, flexible-wing aircraft, published by Jones and Cesnik in July 2015. They will be honored in November at the Innovation Conference in London and also in The Aeronautical Journal, the Society’s monthly publication.

We hope you will join us in celebrating their achievement!
