Hovercraft Design Competition

     The AIAA UCF Hovercraft Design Competition organizes students into teams with goals to design, model, build, and test remote controlled hovercrafts culminating in a final competition. The competition is open to members of all grades and majors. The competition’s mission is to serve as an introductory engineering competition that teaches basic engineering skills and practices such as 3D modeling and iterative designs.
