Design of a Micro-Aircraft Glider Public
Downloadable ContentDownload PDF
The goal of this project was to design an aircraft to compete in the micro-class of the 2013 SAE Aero Design West competition. To obtain the lightest possible aircraft, the team chose to construct a glider. The aircraft is completely dependent on potential energy to complete the course, thus a launching system was also developed. Ultimately, the aircraft did not cover the required distance, but significant improvements were made over previous designs. This report details the competition goals and constraints, design process, aircraft configuration, and recommendations for future development.
