Design/Build/Fly


We are the University of Colorado Boulder Design/Build/Fly team! We design and manufacture a remote controlled aircraft from scratch in compliance with a set of rules drafted by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) to compete in an international competition. The final aircraft is taken to competition to prove its air superiority over other competing teams. 

The team is off for the summer. Once the rules are released by the AIAA, we're going to design the plane for 2016's competition.You'll find updates on the team's status on the Twitter page. No matter the skill level, major, or year you may be, if you have the will to learn, we welcome you.
