Pound Sterling (£)


Awarded for the best non-professional design submission.

2013 Dave Simpson (presented by CTO Ben Syson). Citation by Ben Syson:–

"The 2013 BMAA engineering award is awarded to Dave Simpson for the design of a set of rudder and brake controls for a disabled student pilot of a Eurostar. In addition to enabling the student and instructor to operate the aircraft, the controls had to be able to be quickly installed and removed from a school aircraft without requiring permanent modification of the aircraft. Dave has designed a simple, lightweight, elegant system that amply meets all these requirements."
