FAA STEM-AVSED Program (Aviation & Space Education)
The mission of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is to provide the safest, most efficient aerospace system in the world.
Sir George Cayley, often called the Father of Aeronautics, designed a helicopter powered by a bow-string mechanism with feather blades (similar to the reproduction shown here). Later, he experimented by flying a model with multiple adjustable surfaces, allowing him to understand how every change affected the model’s flight. This model is a ½ scale replica of his original 1804 model. Cayley used the data from these experiments to publish his On Aerial Navigation in 1809.
