Aerospace engineering


‘Fly Faster’ is an audio play by Jim McGovern. The underlying genre is tragedy with some dry humour and incidental music. The main theme is academic rivalry and the feeling of being repressed or bullied. The context is a department of aeronautical engineering at a university. The play also takes an irreverent look at some engineering, academic and commercial attitudes and practices. It may contain some technical terms! A full three-act stage play variant is also available: ‘Just Let Me Fly.’

Leonard Twiglet runs a propeller-propulsion research grouping, called APPEAL, from the Department of Aeronautical Engineering at the University of Selfridge. Professor Alex Graybell, the Head of the Department, leads a much stronger Jet Engine Research Consortium, JERC.
