    On June 13, 2013, at the Soccer Center in Vaughan, Ontario, Todd Reichert of the Aero Velo team flew the Atlas human-powered helicopter for 65 seconds, reaching an altitude of 3.3 meters and staying within a 10-meter box to win AHS International's $250,000 Igor S. Sikorsky prize.

    Graham will have a fuller post about this later and a story in this week's Aviation Week & Space Technology. This is just a taste.
