Editor’s Note: Over the next year, we will be hosting a series of GoFly Master Lectures where industry experts share advice, insights, and answer questions from GoFly Teams.

For the latest in our series of “Master Lectures,” we welcomed Ashish Bagai, principal at buGiAero. Bagai has expertise in rotary-wing, vertical flight, and subsonic aircraft advanced program concepts, including design, technology development, program inception, planning and management.

His biggest advice for GoFly Prize participants? “Given that this is a particularly crucial phase of the competition that moves on a tight schedule, executing rapidly, but with forethought and awareness, will help your progress,” he said.
