Design, Build, Fly Competition

Design, Build, Fly Competition

In our Design, Build, Fly team, our students are challenged to innovate, fabricate, and demonstrate flight capabilities of a student-built small unmanned, electric powered, radio controlled aircraft that best meets the competition's mission.

In this intense year long competition, students will engage in real-world aircraft design experiences while gaining hands-on training of aircraft fundamentals. Our club leaders are experts in mentoring and teaching topics from agile manufacturing to computational analysis and simulation. These highly sought out skills will prepare students beyond the classroom and into the practical world. Despite student's backgrounds, education or experience, we encourage students of all backgrounds to join our team.
