Well done to all who competed!!

"On behalf of all the students from UD, we are so thankful to have the opportunity to take full advantage of the simulator. Without the help from Merlin, the test pilots, our professors, and other universities to compete and collaborate with, we would be missing out on a truly invaluable way to learn engineering." Jacob Montgomery, The University of Dayton, Ohio.
