Summary

The Queen’s Aero Design Team competes in the International SAE Aero Design Competition, held annually each spring in the United States. The team builds one or two small scale remote control aircrafts, which aim to accomplish several goals, including highest payload fraction (smallest plane, biggest load), accuracy in dropping a payload onto a target, and largest payload carried. New aircrafts are designed and built each year using a variety of design software and techniques, and then constructed in shop. All disciplines and faculties are welcome to join the team, and of course, no experience is required. Come check us out! If you are interested in joining, feel free to email the captain, Louis Burelle, at aero@engsoc.queensu.ca, or drop by BMH 115A.
