|The 20th Annual Design/Build/Fly Competition, 15-17 April 2016, attracted over 600 attendees. Pictured, 1st - 3rd place winners.
Every year the AIAA Foundation with assistance from several AIAA Technical Committees and corporate sponsors Cessna Aircraft Company and Raytheon Missile Systems, sponsors a competition for undergraduate and graduate students to design and build a remote-controlled aircraft to perform specific tasks. Students then come together to face off against each other in April. For specific information about the Design/Build/Fly Competition, please visit the DBF website. Rules, team lists, external resources, and the ongoing FAQ are all maintained there.
