Teams are advised to check with their airlines on what materials they will be allowed to bring both to and from the contest site.  Hazmat items like paints, thinners and glues may need to be purchased locally and PROPERLY disposed of following the contest. 

**NOTE: It is the team’s responsibility to ensure that their aircraft arrives at the flyoff location. Neither AIAA nor the corporate sponsors will assist in getting your aircraft or materials to the flyoff location. Teams may hand carry their aircraft, use a shipping company to have it delivered to their hotel, or use any other means of transportation that they feel is appropriate. But each team must coordinate all aspects of getting the aircraft to the flyoff.
