This year, 16 members formed the HKUST aircraft model team to participate in the Design Build and Fly competition organized by American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, the most influential aircraft model competition in the United States. It is the 3rd time a HKUST team has participated in this competition alongside 84 teams from top universities all over the world including MIT, Cornell, and Caltech. We ranked 35 out of 84 teams during the contest.\n
We also welcome everyone who is interested to participate in the model competition in 2016. You do not need an engineering background to participate! If you have a dream in aeronautics/aviation and if you want to participate in aircraft model competition, please don’t hesitate to come and chat with us!
