Cloudbase Mayhem podcast: Rene Falquier and the ABC's of Glider Design
In 2020 Rene Falquier spent a year in the BGD design office in the south of France, working on his aeronautics and engineering thesis.
He was recently interviewed by Gavin McClurg for his Cloudbase Mayhem podcasts. Gavin wanted to know how a wing comes to fruition. How much is science vs craft? How much is wing development driven by design philosophy? How does the design process work? And critically, does knowing anything about wing design help us become better pilots?
Gavin wrote, "Rene and I had a blast with this show, and I learned a ton!"
