What is this Workshop about?
Biplane airplane with two wings, one above the other, the very first design, in the 1890s this configuration was adopted for some successful piloted gliders. The Wright brothers’ biplanes (1903–09) opened the era of powered flight. Biplanes predominated in military and commercial aviation from World War I through the early 1930s, but the biplane’s greater manoeuvrability could not offset the speed advantage of the lighter monoplane. After World War II, biplanes were used only for special purposes: crop dusting and sport (aerobatic) flying.
This Workshop by AerotriX gives you an opportunity to understand the theory behind the functioning of aircraft and aircraft design. Ever wondered what happens if you have box wings on an aircraft instead of usual design? Here we let you innovate by coming up with your design of Biplane aircraft and fabricate them from scratch. An interactive lecture session and design session by jogging up your little brain for designing the best performing aircraft.
