The new DBF rules are out and Pegasus has begun the new year.

Our Fall 12 meeting schedule is below if anybody would like to stop in and see how you could benefit from this great experience.

WMU AIAA Student Section: Pegasus Chapter


The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) is a national organization that excels to bring the newest and latest technologies to the sky. At WMU, Pegasus is trying to accomplish this same goal. Every year we compete in a Design, Build, and Fly competition in which we spend most of our semester Designing and building a radio controlled aircraft to be ready to fly at this year’s competition. Many hours of hard work will be put into this plane, and our goal is to achieve the best ranking possible out of the 100+ universities that are going to be there. This is hands on engineering that will benefit us well into the future. We can also do stuff other than just building a plane. Have you ever thought about going to the Air Zoo, or flying an RC plane just for recreation? We are planning to do activities like this too. What about bringing in a guest speaker to talk to us about their experiences with aeronautics and astronautics? It’s all on the agenda.
We are looking for anyone: engineers, aviation students, business, and film/ photography…. The list goes on and on. So swing by the UAV lab at the engineering campus, there is always something to do. We meet on Thursdays at 6:30 pm.

 

We are currently accepting new student members.
