Design Build Fly

The Design Build Fly competition is annually held by the national AIAA body, jointly sponsored by Cessna and Raytheon. The competition requires that our team design and manufacture a large remote controlled airplane ourselves. The aircraft must be capable of the missions outlined in the rules. Find out more about the information on the competition home page. We have 5 primary design groups: Aerodynamics, Structures, CAD/Design, Propulsion, and Electronics. Each group is coordinated by a captain who reports to the build project manager.
