The Blue Ascender

2007

Not Built

In 2007, members of the M-Fly team at the University of Michigan designed a single engine, pusher propeller aircraft employing a canard configuration. This plane, The Blue Ascender, was designed with the intention of carrying a maximum amount of payload to compete in the SAE Aero Design Competition. The design was worked on by the team, however it never made it to the construction phase.
