Project Description

Our sponsor, Dr. Oman gave the following description to the team in preparation for the project, here’s the description.“The SAE Aero Regular Design competition is a real‐world design challenge designed to compress a typical aircraft development program into one calendar year, taking participants through the system engineering process of breaking down requirements. The goal of the challenge is to create an RC airplane no greater than 12 feet in wingspan that can compete in an international competition. The challenge this year will be to analyze last year's design to determine how to optimize their system for flight and competition. Prior to the 2019-20 team, the Aero Regular challenge was to create a system that could carry a payload of tennis balls. Last year’s 2019-20 rules were changed so that the payload is now a soccer ball.”
