Civilian S6 Coyote
Boeing and the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) created the Schools Build-a-Plane Challenge in 2009 to inspire young people across the UK in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) through a hands-on build challenge. The project provides young people in UK secondary schools with the opportunity to build a real RANS Coyote II light aircraft from a kit and gives them experience of the aircraft build process and an understanding the scientific and engineering principles behind flight. The challenge also encourages the development of commercial skills such as project management, problem-solving, team work marketing and communication. The challenge culminates in the aircraft being certified to fly and the students who helped build the plane take to the skies in their finished product.
