==AT Aircraft==
Reflecting on the [[Aircraft]] article created a while ago by Emesee, I was reminded of the one of my earlier ideas that aircraft could be used as a transport vehicle between AT villages. I envisioned simple, inexpensive DIY ultralight aircraft for this. However, seeing the little wing span, I think that this design could be well improved. I was thinking of using a cross-over between the [[Tokyo Institute of Technology]] Oxyride manned airplane project, the Solar Challenger and the NASA ARES aircraft. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_Challenger , http://marsairplane.larc.nasa.gov/platform.html (note the tail design), http://www.highbeam.com/doc/1G1-148326743.html By maximizing the wingspan, and by using simple components/design, we can design a more cost/effective aircraft for this purpose.
