Aero Projects and Move Timetable

The department continues to invest in new and refurbished facilities and laboratories as we prepare for the move. The headline big projects currently underway include

  • Refurbished 10×5 (formerly Honda) wind tunnel
  • New T1 and T2 wind tunnels in the CAGB building to replace the old 3×3 and Donald Campbell wind tunnels
  • New Flight Simulator located in CAGB to replace the present Motus Simulator
  • New Mach 5 Supersonic wind tunnel
  • New Flight Arena building at the back of CAGB (visible from Dalby Court) for Aerial Robotic teaching and research

Below is the latest timetable for these projects


October 2016 Update

In coming months a plan for the scheduled move of the Department of Aeronautics to the CAGB building on Exhibition road will be announced. It is expected that the move will take place over a period of about 6 weeks in the summer of 2017. The move will consist of

  • Academic offices
  • Administration
  • Aero labs and workshops

The department will then occupy most of the space in the building next to Exhibition Road (shown below), with some lab space and shared spaces in CAGB, Skempton, Roderic Hill and ACE.
