AIAA Design-build-fly competition 2018 - Wichita, Kansas

AIAA Design-build-fly competition 2018

The HKUST AeroTeam (formerly the Aeronautics Interest Group) has once again participated in the annual Design-Build-Fly competition organized by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA).

This year, the weather was less than ideal during the 3-day competition, with strong winds making it notoriously difficult to fly and stormy weather interrupting the progress of the flight line. Nevertheless, the HKUST AeroTeam managed to overcome most of these difficulties, finishing 26th out of 91 teams from around the world. As the only Hong Kong-based team in the competition, the HKUST AeroTeam succeeded in showcasing the passion and excitement that our little city has for aviation and aerospace engineering.
