2017 Planes

Our regular class plane this year ran into issues during the shipping process, which consequently resulted in a few team members going the extra mile to retrieve the plane from our shipper, and therefore resulting in our members spending long, late nights preparing the plane for initial tech inspection. We ran into additional problems along the way and was unable to participate in the flight rounds. However, our micro class team was able to successfully fly a few rounds during the seven flight rounds.

Here are our standings for this year:

2016 Plane – Alberta Beef

The Alberta Beef plane is the first Schulich Aerodesign plane to successfully fly at the SAE Aero Design competition Previously, our planes were either stopped in customs or crashed during the test process. The 2015/16 school year marked the time when the team took the extra mile, learned from mistakes and ensured that every process of design and build were perfected. Our team placed 10th in the oral presentations, 16th in the flight rounds and 27th in the design report.  

The name Alberta Beef was inspired by one of the judges’ comments—“that plane is beefy”.
