Human Powered Aircraft

External Engagement

The Southampton University Human Powered Aircraft (SUHPAC) has its roots all the way back to 1961 where the University first manufactured and flew the world's first official human powered aircraft.

In 2011, the SUHPA group design project (GDP) was initiated by Dr. Alexander Forrester as the 50th Anniversary of Southampton University's Man Powered Aircraft.
