Sikorsky Prize falls!

One of the things got me into riding human powered vehicles was watching a NOVA episode on the Kremer prize for human powered flight. One of the MIT professors involved in that effort was riding a recumbent bike in several of the videos, something I had never seen at the time, and I fell in love with the idea.

Today, the Sikorsky Prize for a human powered helicopter has been won by a Canadian startup company Aerovelo. You can read about it here. Congratulations!
