March Field Air Museum is proud to welcome Dr. Branko Sarh, a recently retired Boeing Company Senior Scientist, as a guest presenter at the upcoming Inland Empire Aviation Roundtable on Wednesday evening, January 17, 2018. Dr. Sarh is a returning guest to the Museum and was, in fact, the very first Aviation Roundtable presenter when the interpretive program begin seven years ago. He will provide a follow-up to his initial and fascinating “Flying Cars” presentation, and will share compelling new information and insights about recent developments in the industry as it relates to this fast-moving technology. Free and open to the public, the Inland Empire Aviation Roundtable begins at 7 p.m. and is proudly sponsored by the March Field Air Museum.
Since the dawn of aviation – and after the Wright brothers took to the skies at Kitty Hawk in 1903 – enthusiasts and experts alike have been trying to figure out how to develop a vehicle which could both drive and fly. A number of innovative configurations have been developed over the past century, starting with Curtiss’ and Fullerton’s “roadable airplanes,” then Molt Taylor’s AeroCar in the 1950s, and more recently Paul Moller’s Skycar. In 1999, Terrafugia achieved FAA certification for its roadable airplane. During his “Flying Cars: An Update” presentation, Dr. Sarh will share his extensive knowledge about various projects and designs over time while noting some of the barriers and problems encountered along the way. He will also provide a glimpse into the future of this intriguing field of study and aviation design.
As part of his impressive background in aviation, guest presenter Dr. Sahr was previously employed at Airbus Industries and MBB in Hamburg, Germany, where he developed the automated manufacturing process for the Airbus 330 composite vertical fin. He also conducted independent research at MIT, and at Rohr Corporation in Riverside, where he was project engineer on a U.S. Air Force research program in robotic assembly of aircraft components. In his after-work avocation, Dr. Sahr remains an enthusiastic proponent of the study and development of flying cars. He has chaired several sections on the topic of flying cars, presented his own technical papers at SAE International symposiums nationwide, and received NASA grants to further his research.
