USNTPS Guest Speaker: Chip Yates

  • October 17, 2019
  • 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM
  • NAS Patuxent River Base Theater

Mr. Chip Yates, the guest speaker, has modified a Long-Ez aircraft with a Siemens electric engine and has been setting world records as part of his flight test program.  The kicker is that he had to teach himself to fly, then understand flight-test and then started this endeavor with little to no funding.  It’s interesting and innovative while encompassing an opportunity vs. risk philosophy.  He has also invented Silent Arrow, a high-altitude, heavy payload Group 5 UAS. Information flyer attached.

1230 at NAS Pax River Base Theatre on Thursday, 17 October 2019.  Duration is approximately 90 minutes.  Open to all.
