Iranian Girl Wins AIAA’s Best Aircraft Style Award


Mina Khalilzadeh Fat’hi, a student of the Aerospace Engineering Faculty of Sharif University of Technologies, has participated individually in the competitions held by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) and won the 1st title in the Undergraduate Person Aircraft Style Competitors.

Mina was born in the city of Bonab in East Azarbaijan province in 1978. She research aerospace at Sharif University of Technologies and plans to go to a foreign nation to acquire a master’s degree mainly because “this field in Iran is not appropriate for girls.”

“At higher college, I participated with my classmates in glider competitions at Sharif University of Technologies and got acquainted with the aerospace at this good university,” Mina told Fars News Agency.

“Of course, numerous people today look at this field as male-oriented, but I disagree with it. I believed about anything, such as the job market place ahead of picking out the key. I came to the conclusion that if I can’t obtain a job in Iran, I will not really feel down and will go to other airlines to obtain a job.”

“Last year, as aspect of a group from Sharif University, we participated in the AIAA competitions, but could not win any title nonetheless the competitors had 3 other sections that people today can take aspect individually. Thus, I participated individually in these competitions and submitted the vital reports to them in Might. I ultimately received an e-mail right after becoming judged by professional engineers from key providers in the globe announcing that my proposal has ranked 1st,” she added.

“When I received the e-mail it was talked about at the finish that they could not send me the 1,000 USD prize mainly because of the sanctions and I was upset. Of course, they had announced that group members could travel to the United States to elaborate on their program, but I have not received such an e-mail but.”

Referring to the positive aspects of the proposed program, she mentioned the program proposed in this section was to design and style an unmanned aerial program for inspection of 150 miles of energy transmission lines in one particular day.

For a short critique of Iran’s achievements in different fields of science and technologies, verify the book “Science and Technologies in Iran: A Short Assessment – 2019

“The program to be made need to have reduce fees than present solutions for conducting larger energy lines and far more safety in comparison with other unmanned aerial systems.”

Fat’hi mentioned that though sanctions have produced a lot of difficulties for Iranian airlines, there are nevertheless numerous authorities who place the airlines in fantastic and secure circumstances.

The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) is a skilled society for the field of aerospace engineering. The AIAA is the US representative on the International Astronautical Federation and the International Council of the Aeronautical Sciences. In 2015, it had far more than 30,000 members amongst aerospace pros worldwide.

The AIAA annually holds design and style competitions and Style/Make/Fly competitions to supply a genuine-globe design and style practical experience for engineering students, each undergraduate and graduate, by providing them the chance to validate their analytic research.
