Welcome to SUHPA! We are a group of students building our own human powered aircraft, the "Super Lazarus". With a wingspan similar to a private jet (24m), mass of only 38 kg, and the legs of the pilot as its sole powerplant, the aircraft is a huge engineering undertaking! We are the only student team flying HPAs at the moment, but we may see some friendly competition with Strathyclyde soon as they develop their own aircraft!
We have three teams working on the project that you can get involved with: the design team, the manufacturing team, and the avionics team.
Our "Super Lazarus" aircraft successfully flew during the Icarus cup competition in 2022, organized by the British Human Powered flying club. Join us for a chance to get hands on with Super Lazarus and help fly it in 2023!
All clubs and societies within the Students' Union are run entirely by students. The student committee for Human Powered Aircraft this year are:
