On May 31, Huang Lingcai, the chief designer of the AG600 Kunlong, was invited to give a lecture on challenges in the development and application of large amphibious aircrafts in the first lecture hall of New Main Building, which attracted nearly 300 teachers and students.
During the lecture, Huang reviewed the twists and turns in the development of marine aircrafts in the past century, illustrated the special role of amphibious aircrafts in aviation emergency rescue, such as forest fire fighting and maritime search and rescue, and shared his thoughts on the future development of amphibious aircraft based on his own experience in the design of AG600.
Following the lecture, Huang Lingcai had in-depth exchanges with some students, and presented the latest AG600 special stamp album to them. He encouraged the students to participate in the design and development of large aircrafts after graduation and devote themselves to serving the country in the fields of aeronautics and astronautics.
The lecture was for the course “Classic Aircraft Design Case Analysis”, one of the ideological and political "trilogy" of aircraft design courses under the national first-class course "Aircraft General Design" constructed by the School of Aeronautic Science and Engineering. The course shows the efforts of aviation professionals in the design of China's indigenously-developed aircrafts through case analysis, aiming to cultivate students’ aviation knowledge and promote the training of aircraft design professionals with both integrity and ability.
