The Concordia SAE Aero Design team is a student-run group that competes in the SAE Aero Design Collegiate Design Series organized by SAE International. These are extremely competitive events that are held annually, with universities from around the world competing with RC Aircrafts designed, manufactured, and tested by students. The primary goal is to develop a cargo lift remote control airplane that can lift specific types of payload. This project allows students to learn about flight dynamics, aircraft configuration selection, detailed design, structural analysis, propulsion, telemetry, and electronics. Members learn responsibility, time management, commitment, and teamwork.
