The overall aims of the competition are:
- To raise awareness of the creation of ‘E’ Conditions;
- To stimulate interest in the use of ‘E’ Conditions for innovative aerospace design and
- To provide a fun and rewarding opportunity for those with an interest in the field to have their ideas scrutinised by experts.
The scope of the competition from the RAeS website is:
The draft ‘E’ conditions are deliberately broad in their scope and are applicable to entirely new designs, existing designs that embody new modifications, aircraft being operated in a previously unproven role or designs that fall outside the scope of existing regulations. It may be that a single competition would be too broad and that several competitions need to be developed to cater for the different types of design idea that could be submitted.
The same is true for the target audience. The aim will be to encourage a broad spectrum of entries, from private individuals or companies, through to Schools, Colleges and Universities. To formulate the correct competition strategy or strategies then, the General Aviation Group would therefore be pleased to hear from anyone or any organisation that might consider entering such a competition and the category or categories of design that they would consider submitting. Examples might include but are certainly not limited to a replacement for the Rans S-6 for the RAeS Schools ‘Build-a-Plane’ project or an all-electric glider tug aircraft.
