Design Build Fly

Design Build Fly is an annual competition hosted by AIAA, Cessna Aircraft Company and Raytheon Missile Systems that is available for teams across the world to compete in. Students who participate gain valuable team building skills while getting real world experience in aircraft design. Each year, AIAA releases rules and constraints that teams must comply to while creating their aircraft. More information about the competition can be found here.
