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.
