Description

Design Build Fly is an opportunity for aspiring engineers to explore the field of Aeronautical Engineering with active hands-on experience designing and building a remote controlled aircraft from the ground up and applying engineering principles to real world situations. All majors are welcome.

Each year the RPI DBF build an airplane to compete with teams from around the world in the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Design Build Fly competition. The complete Design and build process is done by students during our weekly meetings.
