Abstract

The ERAU Prescott chapter of AIAA will present the accomplishments of the student design team leading up to the 2015 AIAA Design Build Fly competition at Raytheon Missile Systems in Tucson. A remote controlled aircraft meeting and exceeding all competition performance requirements was designed and fabricated by the 30-plus students of the team. Additionally, a 60-page report was submitted detailing the project starting from initial considerations and advancing through flight test verification of aircraft capabilities. The success of this project was enabled by the E-Prize and SGA funding received to support our efforts throughout the year. The lessons learned regarding management and planning, engineering design approaches, and experimental validation allowed team members to develop and improve their practical engineering abilities over the course of the Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 semesters.
