Aerovelo's human-powered helicopter pushes physical and creative limits


Aerovelo, a small Canadian team made up of University of Toronto alumni, students and volunteers, clinched the 33-year-old Sikorsky Prize for human-powered helicopter flight. "This isnít something that youíre going to commute to work in any time soon, but itís an exercise in really pushing the limits on whatís physically possible, and what you can do with lightweight materials and really creative design," Aerovelo pilot Todd Reichert said of the group's aircraft.
