Abstract

SAE Eagle Aero aims to design, build, and fly an original remote-controlled aircraft, and compete in the regular class of the SAE Aero Collegiate Design Series: Aero Design® West” 2015 competition at Van Nuys, CA, April 24-26. By entering, members can benefit from experiencing and becoming familiar with the event, and our representation at the event will allow ERAU Prescott to show leadership in aerospace education”. Members of the team are gaining knowledge in designing, simulation, and hands-on construction of an original aircraft before they partake in their capstone course. The team plans to enter micro and advanced classes in future years. Members analyzed, and built Dumas L-19 Bird Dog kit as a case study. With this experience, the team has come up with the detail design of the original aircraft starting with airfoil selection, and have begun assembling the aircraft, which features dihedral, 10-pound thrust motor, and five channels of control. Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) International plays a role of responsibility in developing breakthroughs in transportation methods, including aircrafts, automobiles, and commercial vehicles.
