As the ONLY undergraduate Flight Simulation Society in the world, we do exiciting things - meet the exiciting people who make it happen!
Aerospace Engineering students
Mechanical Engineering students
Charly is looking to develop the society further this year, paying particular attention to the new AIAA section as well as developing Phoenix and bringing greater public appeal to the project. Furthermore, after having been heavily invested in IT Flies project, Charly hopes to continue our record of success in the competition.
Seiya is a 3rd year aerospace engineering student who joined the society in 2015. In 2015/2016 Seiya took part in a team desiging a business jet for the UK competition which led him to create a design with the same team the following year competing in the US competition. Having taken on quite a lot of responsibility in the society, Seiya has risen to vice president for FSSoc and also takes an active part in co-running the PASS flight simulation scheme.
Ana is a 3rd Year Aerospace Engineering student and has been member of the Flight Simulation society for two years, this year joining the committee as General Secretary. Ana has participated and won in both the UK and US competitions with her teammates Thomas and Yufei with their Stingray and Elektron concept models.
IT Flies - Chief Engineer
Kavin has been part of IT Flies since his first year as an Aerospace Engineering Student. He has worked on business jets and hybrid airliners. He has entered the IT Flies competition and won most innovative design and 2nd Best presentation along with his team. He has also supervised first years on their projects and has experience with supersonic, light and cargo aircraft.
IT Flies - Project Manager
Thomas has been part of FSSoc since his first year. His team (Ana & Yufei) won first in the UK & US IT Flies competitions along with Best Presentation - one of the only teams to do so. He has supervised projects designing a broad range of aircraft types; with interests extending to spacecraft as he participated in The Student Aerospace Challenge held in Paris. He has experience working with rotorcraft designs; recently completing an internship with Airbus Helicopters.
AIAA - Chief Engineer
Together with his teammates, Yufei won the IT Flies UK Competition in first year and the US Competition in second year. Now, as a third year Aerospace student and a senior member of the society, he is in charge of the society’s latest project; AIAA, aiming at the annual AIAA Design Competition.
Project Phoenix - Chief Engineer
Dariusz joined the society in 2015. A keen flight simulation user, Dariusz has recently been making his own add-on scenery in an attempt to make the experience even more realistic. He enjoys working with and maintaining the powerful machines that the society uses to run its simulators. If not sat in front of a computer screen, Dariusz may be flying his drones or firing up his model jet engine.
Project Phoenix - Assistant Chief Engineer
An avid flight and racing sim-enthusiast, Tim has a passion for anything and everything aviation or engineering-related. As an active member in the Flight Sim society since 2015, he works mainly on project Phoenix, supplying CAD models of various cockpit components and more recently being involved in the reconstruction of the cockpit itself.
Project Phoenix - Project Manager
Muktim joined the society in his first year by designing a passenger jet and working on Project Phoenix. He is interested in building and using simulators and keen on bringing the HAWK simulator to full functionality. This year, he is the Project Manager for Project Phoenix.
Ruta is second year Aerospace engineering student. In 2016/17 she worked on a closed wind light aircraft and won 3rd place in the UK It Flies competition. She has become treasurer of the society and hopes to bring about a new financial sunrise. She cannot wait to introduce her new MENT brand model to compete in the USA and looks forward to supervising new society members, to see them learn, develop and grow to take over UK competition.
Public Relations Secretary
Kuhu is a 3rd year Aerospace Engineering student and this is her second year in the Flight Simulation Society. Last year she, along with her team designed a Supersonic variable sweep business jet and competed in the IT Flies UK competition. This year, she has joined the committee as the Public Relations Secretary and is looking forward to supervising new teams while also working on a model to participate in the IT Flies US competition.
Website Developer & PASS coordinator
Daniel, now a third year Aerospace engineering student, has been a member of the society since his first year, and is currently FSSoc's website manager. In his first project, he worked with Seiya, Kavin and Charly to develop a private jet model, and was responsible for developing the CAD presentation model for the aircraft. Daniel also leads FSSoc's PASS collaboration, teaching first years about the basics of flight dynamics and stability and simulator use.
Junior Website Manager
Clinton joined the society as a 1st year Aerospace student and now, as a second year, will be designing a planes for the 'IT Flies UK Competition 2018' and the US Competition. Clinton is also a member of Aerosoc and has an obsessive passion for aviation, astronautics and cosmology .
