Powering Imagination’s Quiet Flight Initiative will partner with the Green Flight Program at Embry-Riddle’s Daytona Beach Campus, where students and faculty will convert a Diamond HK36 motorglider to electric power for testing in noise-sensitive areas.
The four new members who will help shape the future of the world’s top aerospace and aviation university include two alumni and experts in aerospace finance, alternative energy, health and insurance.
The new aircraft will upgrade Embry-Riddle's current Skyhawk flight-training fleet at the residential campuses in Daytona Beach, Fla., and Prescott, Ariz. Skyhawks are well-regarded for their safety, reliability and high quality.
