MAE PhD student, Zhongqi (Henry) Jia, has received the Vertical Flight Foundation (VFF) scholarship and he was invited to the American Helicopter Society (AHS) International 73rd Annual Forum Grand Awards Banquet, which took place on May, 10, 2017. The award news was published in the Vertiflite magazine, which is a publication of AHS International (https://vtol.org/vertiflite/2017_July_Aug/files/assets/common/downloads/page0047.pdf ). Each year, Vertical Flight Foundation (VFF) scholarships are awarded to students demonstrating an interest in pursuing engineering related careers in vertical flight technology.
Henry Jia is a doctoral student and researcher at Professor Seongkyu Lee’s Aeroacoustics Lab at the University of California, Davis. His primary research focus is on rotorcraft aeroacoustics, particularly blade-vortex interaction (BVI) noise of a lift-offset coaxial rotor. His research is supported by the US Army through the Vertical Lift Research Center of Excellence (VLRCOE). Henry’s biography and this year’s recipients can be found from the links below.
