Welcome to the world of joanneum Aeronautics!

Founded in 2014, the jA is an association based in Graz (Austria). Its goal is to provide young aeronauts a platform to participate in different contests all over the world. For this purpose, the Aeronautics are split into two TEAMS. You can discover these TEAMS when you click on the different categories.

During the time within the association, the students gain a lot of expertise in management, technical practises and of course teamwork. International experience is included as well. The Design-Build-Fly Team for example, travels to America to participate at the AIAA Design Build Fly Contest yearly. As mentioned before, teamwork is a very important factor within the joanneum Aeronautics. Furthermore, the Drone-Tech Team offers young students a perfect environment to gain experience with modern electronics and actual drone developments.

The Design-Build-Fly and the Drone-Tech Team are managed seperately, the association itself provides the legal background for both. If you want to have more detailed information about us, please feel free to contact us.
