Brien A.Seeley M.D., PADA Program Chair and President of the CAFE Foundation, sends the following invitation.
The highlight of Oshkosh AirVenture for me each year is the Personal Aircraft Design Academy (PADA), whose casual, delicious, catered buffet ‘networking’ dinner is followed by its colloquium for leading aircraft designers, enthusiasts and aero engineers. Several of the renowned previous PADA Trophy recipients are expected to dine and attend PADA 2014, where we will reveal and honor the 12th annual recipient of the perpetual PADA Trophy. For 2014, the presentation program will feature two exciting new aircraft: Richard Hogan from Commutercraft will present ‘The Innovator—a New 3–‐surface Aircraft’ and Oliver Garrow will present the technical details of a new tilt‐wing VTOL aircraft—the Elytron.”
The 2014 PADA dinner will be at 6:15 PM on Friday August 1, at the large, white Nature Tent #3, which is in the wooded area about ¼ mile East of the EAA Museum. The PADA colloquium presentations, which are open to all and do not require attendance at the dinner, will follow at 7:30 PM in the air-conditioned Vette Theatre inside the AirVenture Museum. Several of the renowned previous PADA Trophy recipients are expected to dine and attend PADA 2014, where we will reveal and honor the 12th recipient of the perpetual PADA Trophy.
“The rich history of PADA is available here.
“PADA 2014 promises to be an outstanding meeting I urge all who are interested to sign up now before the PADA dinner runs out of seats!”
