News Update: M-Fly competed in the 2013 SAE Aero Design East competition March 15-17, 2013 in Fort Worth, Texas. The team won both the written design report and the oral presentation for the regular class and finished in 13th place overall!!
M-Fly is a Society of Automotive Engineers Aerospace Design team at the University of Michigan dedicated to promoting opportunities for students to practice applying their knowledge to aerospace projects outside the classroom.
“The SAE Aero Design ® Competition challenges engineering students to design, fabricate, and test a radio controlled aircraft that can take off and land while carrying the maximum cargo. This gives students the opportunity to apply the knowledge learned in the classroom on a practical real world problem.” -SAE Aero Design
General Team meetings are held weekly in the FXB to discuss the
current progress of the projects. Additional meetings are held for individual
engineering sub-teams throughout the week. Building sessions take place in
the Wilson Student Team Project Center periodically throughout the year, and any member
may attend to help build the aircraft.
Students of all majors and standing are welcome to join M-Fly. Anyone interested in remote controlled aircraft is encouraged to attend our weekly meetings and become an active member of the team.
