The Light Sport Aircraft Folding Wing Mechanism and Control System Design Team, which consists of three team members, David Roncin, Chris King, and Nathan Swanger, developed designs for the folding mechanism and control system of the Messiah College Flying Club’s light sport aircraft. We built these systems with the club’s specifications and desires for integration in mind. The problem that our project addressed was the need of a wing folding mechanism design and control system design for the Messiah College Flying Club. Specifications were generated from data given to us by Dr. Pratt and the Flying Club. Based on desired performance characteristics of the aircraft, we were given numbers related to the movement of the control surfaces. There are also two different types of landing gear that are used, tail dragger or tricycle. The Flying Club has already decided on using tricycle style gear as it will have better ground control. This essentially makes the plane easier to control at high speeds while allowing it to make sharp turns at lower speeds. This type of steering is very difficult to utilize with a tail dragger as the back wheel and the rudder are linked, similar to how Pazmany does it in his PL-4A aircraft (Pazmany). Throughout the design process potential ideas were developed, many of which were chosen for one reason, then later abandoned for another. There was no aspect of our project where we did not rework a design at some point. Design Process Initial designs and plans were focused around accomplishing the various goals and specifications that we and the Flying Club came up with. Initial steps in this process were in acquiring plans for the fuselage as we would have to work around constraints based on its design. We also spent time in the library trying to find information about aircraft design and if there were any particular specifications we would need to keep in mind during the initial design process.
