Terry Flynn

Terry G Flynn is officer in charge of the Aerodynamics Laboratory in the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering University of New South Wales Sydney Australia.

Terry kindly made arrangements for an undergraduate engineering student, Matthew Turner, to undertake a thesis project to assess the smoke lifting capabilities of the 5AT's front-end arrangement. 

This was the first cooperation between a university research department and the 5AT project, and it is hoped that similar research cooperations can be arranged in the future (see Research Opportunities page of this website).
