- Engineering Building III (EB3) HB107
Dr. Hall is interested in aircraft design, flight testing, airworthiness, dynamics and control. He directs the undergraduate capstone senior aircraft design courses MAE 478 and MAE 479. The students are given a set of customer requirements and as teams they generate a design, construct their design, ground test and flight test their aircraft.
In these classes and his research, his team has flight tested over 70 UAS-type aircraft.

Dr. Hall directs the Flight Research Group in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. The Flight Research Group is involved primarily with UAS/UAV/RPV aircraft but some programs have involved general aviation and C-130 aircraft. Past projects include 1) studying airworthiness criteria for small UAS's (NAVAIR), 2) enhancement of the aerodynamic database for the full scale F/A-18E based on a 17.5% scaled F/A-18E/F RPV test flights, and 3) flight testing of the use of microjet vortex generators.
