Welcome to SUHPA! We are a group of student engineers building our own human powered aircraft, the "Super Lazarus". With a wingspan similar to a private jet (24m), weight of only 45kg, and the legs of the pilot as its sole powerplant, the aircraft is a huge engineering undertaking! We are the only student team building an HPA in the UK at the moment.
We have three teams working on the project that you can get involved with: the design team, the manufacturing team, and the flight crew.
Our older "Lazarus" aircraft successfully lifted off during flight tests in 2021, as well as at the Icarus cup competition organized by the British Human Powered flying club. Join us for a chance to get hands on with the Super Lazarus and help fly it at the 2022 Icarus cup!
All clubs and societies within the Students' Union are run entirely by students. The student committee for Human Powered Aircraft this year are:
