About HKUST Aero Team
Aero Team is a HKUST student group dedicated to Aeronautical Engineering and Design, Build, Fly (DBF) competitions around the world. Our goal is to create a platform for students from all disciplines to share and learn from each other while learning more about the aviation industry.
What do we do indeed?
Every year we will participate in different kinds of competitions around the world. We aim to the best! For instance, we ranked 35 out of 104 in AIAA Design, Build, Fly competition 2019 globally.
We design our competition aircraft with detailed CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) and FEM (Finite element method) calculations. We have incorporate some of the latest technologies on our designed model to score a better result in the competition.
We design all of our activities with a practical mind. By joining our activities, you will be able to get your hands on modeling aircraft and even talk to senior engineers and managers from the aeronautical engineering companies though our talks and visits!
In the coming year, we are going to hold lots of activities and training!
Check your email periodically or keep in touch with us via this website and our social media.
- Model Plane Building Workshop
- Aeronautical Lecture
- Pilot Training and Exam Session
- Aerospace Exhibition
We organized a lot of amazing events!
Model planes were built by students and gave the first experience of the building process to everyone interested in RC plane manufacture!
Participants had chance to know more about the aviation industry and challenge themselves in a flight simulator.
We organize plenty of test flights every year to test its flying characteristics after we have constructed a new plane!
Beside building the aircraft, you can try to fly a model plane by yourself. After training in simulation for a period of time, you will have a chance to be a RC pilot!
We organized training and talks for student who wanna know more about aeronautics and aerospace.
Students were selected into the fly-off team to represent HKUST in joining the AIAA DBF competition or BMFA payload challenges and compete with universities around the world!
As a student of HKUST, you can enjoy free membership!
We will reply you as soon as possible after your application.
