COMPETITION

The SAE Aero Design Series collegiate competition is intended to give undergraduate and graduate students experience working to solve real world engineering problems. The team strives to design an aircraft that is light weight and yet, durable enough to take off with heavy payloads within 200 feet and using only 1000 Watts of power. These design limitations are parallel to real world challenges in the aviation industry, and push the team to innovate novel designs for mobility enhancement.
 
This year, UBC AeroDesign competed in the Regular Class division of the 2017 SAE Aero Design East competition, held in Lakeland, Florida. 
The objective of Regular Class is to design an aircraft that can lift as much weight as possible and to accurately predict the lifting capacity of the aircraft. In the past, the team has even competed in the Advanced Class division (formerly known as Open Class) and placed successfully. 

A tradition of excellence...
