Upcoming Seminar: 4-14-21 – Randy Chapman

“Celestial Navigation to Homebuilt Experimental Aircraft?”


This talk will be discussing how my MSU Physics experience/degree gave me a unique perspective on flying and gave me essential building blocks for success. I will talk about my 1981 senior seminar; Celestial navigation (used in 1981 for worldwide navigation and still being used by satellites), and GPS. Then, I will circle back to the early 1980’s at PSU/Aeronautics/Basic flight mechanics and NACA airfoils; Flying basics-supersonic trainers to large transport aircraft and experimental aircraft-design and building.
