Design Build Fly R/C Flight Simulator
Department of Aerospace and Astronautics
Designing, constructing, and testing RC aircraft is one of the best ways for students to explore the concepts of Aeronautical and Structural engineering. To help teach these engineering concepts to undergraduate students, Design Build Fly (DBF) builds RC aircraft to compete in the national competition hosted by the AIAA. Currently, we do not have a flight simulator to train new users to fly aircraft. This has imposed major limitations on our organization’s ability to teach students how to safely pilot RC aircraft. We ask for the funds necessary to purchase a new RC flight simulator so that we will be able to teach students without RC piloting experience how to safely fly aircraft.
