of the air racer, Nemesis. After 9 successful
years, Nemesis was retired to the Smithsonian
National Air and Space Museum; Udvar-Hazy Center.
In 2000, The Sharps and a team of experts, began
the design of the NXT (Neoteric experimental Technology)
kit aircraft. The prototype, the NemesisNXT, flew
its maiden flight on July 10th, 2004. Since that
time, 10 kits have been delivered, of which 5 have

Designer, and engineer extraordinaire. Kevin has
the unique ability to build what he designs. Not
only that, what he designs is very elegant and
Kevin also has the unique ability to extract concepts
from Jon, and then turn them into reality. We
don't know where the NXT program would be without
Kevin, except that it would be nowhere near where
it is today.
Kevin is a very rare talent.
Early on in the NXT project, Daren conducted a
wind tunnel test of an early version of the NXT.
Analyses of the data led to minor modification
to the NXT. Also, some of the aerodynamic data
collected during this test eventually went into
the NXT computer flight simulator assembled by
After the design was finalized, Daren assisted
in the fabrication of the carbon-fiber composite
parts mold and the parts themselves.
He has seen the NXT progress from an idea in Jon's
head to the graceful lines that swoop in the skies

Dan has been with Team Nemesis since 1986, when
Nemesis was still a dream. He has been a crucial
team member at multiple levels, from drag reduction
