AIAA Design–Build–Fly Contest

AIAA Design, Build and Fly Contest

Every year the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) sponsors a variety of inter-university design competitions at both the Undergraduate and Graduate levels.

Among these is the Design/Build/Fly (DBF) competition described as “Open competition! Design, make, and demonstrate the flight capabilities of an unmanned, electric-powered, radio-controlled aircraft to meet this year’s unique mission profile.”

These competitions provide a unique environment to apply the knowledge gained in our studies and to acquire valuable experience. Each year the mission profile is changed to challenge participants to deliver one-of-a-kind results.

For more information about the AIAA competitions feel free to visit the Design Competitions section of their website.
