Three students of Aerospace Engineering major of the University of Nottingham Ningbo China (UNNC), Huang Tianyu, Li Yifan, and Gao Chunyi won a national flight simulator competition recently in Beijing.

This competition is organised annually by Aero Sports Federation of China (ASFC), and open for all university students nationwide.  

Professor Devinder Yadav and Mr Fang Benli are the trainers. They view this result as a high achievement, considering the students have merely had two months of training.

“I feel very proud for our students winning the competition.” Professor Devinder Yadav said, “it is remarkable that they can attain this level of competence within the limited amount of time. Their learning curve remained steep throughout the rigorous training activities.”

The three students belong to the first cohort of BEng Aerospace Engineering programme commenced in September this year. Their training was carried out in the newly established flight simulator laboratory on campus.
