AC Styria goes jAeronautics

Today we were glad to welcome two representatives of the AC Styria in our aviation lab.

We showed them our nearly finished competition plane and had a nice Q&A session with them.
The AC Styria already sponsored the DBF15 Team two years ago and is now thinking about a sponsorship again.

We would be very happy to welcome the AC Styria as a sponsor of DBF17.

Stay tuned

11th PLACE AFTER PROPOSAL!

11th place after the proposal submission for our DBF Team!

The AIAA Design Build Fly Organisation announced the scores for the submitted proposals.
We are very happy to be within the TOP15 already and we are really working hard to build a great plane.
A nice detail is, that we have the same score as Stanford University and MIT, which is pretty cool!
Also the whole ranking is available here.

More detailed information as well as our report will be available around the end of February.

Stay tuned,

Visitors from the Netherlands

Yesterday we were glad to welcome visitors from the Netherlands, exactly from the inholland university of applied sciences.
This university has a partnership with the FH JOANNEUM, which enables our student colleagues exchanges during the 5th semester of the bachelors program.

We showed them our competition plane (sorry but the design is TOP SECRET at the moment) and had a nice talk about their bachelors program and espacially their student support program which is called Engineering Entrepreneurship.
During a period of 10 weeks, this program challanges the students to collaborate on their own technological business idea, testing the technological and market feasibility of their idea by presenting it to the outside world in teams. Each team is obliged to start the program with a self-chosen technology.

Thanks a lot for the nice talk and we hope to meet again soon.

Stay tuned,

Prototype – First Flight

Dear Ladys and Gents,

we’re very happy to announce to you, that our prototype for this years contest managed to spread its wings!
All went well during these first flight tests and thankfully our bird flies like a charm. We are sure you do understand that there will be no further pictures until the design freeze.

Stay tuned, your Precision Flight Team 2017!
