Student Spotlight: Aidan Fay

W.A.R. Lords past and present have been very active in the STEM community this year. This week the spotlight is on Aidan, a junior and our Vice President of programming. As an avid enthusiast of flying, Aidan was devastated when the FAA told him he couldn’t get his pilot’s license because of a medical condition. However, this downfall couldn’t hold him back from doing what he loves. This past summer, Aidan spent his time building a full-scale, full-functioning Cessna 172 cockpit that he connected to an Oculus Rift and Prepar3d. Aidan and his invention gained international attention after going to a MakerFaire and being featured on Popular Mechanics, Slashdot and Vice Motherboard.  Check out one of the articles about him: http://makezine.com/2015/10/17/teen-builds-full-scale-flight-sim/
