The Planes - Our History
Our teams are hard at work at building this year's planes. Yes, you read that right! We are building two planes for this year. For the very first time, we are competing for both the SAE Aero Design competition micro and regular class. We are an engineering team that aims to consistently push our boundaries. Schulich Aerodesign is thrilled to raise the bar and be one of the top teams in the 2017 competition.

Regular Class Standings
Overall Standing: 26th
Oral Presentations: 18th
Flight Rounds: 25th
Design Report: 27th
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:
Overall Standing: 17th
Oral Presentations: 19th
Flight Rounds: Did Not Place
Design Report: 17th
Overall Standing: 4th
Oral Presentations: 4th
Flight Rounds: 7th
Design Report: 15th
Needless to say, both teams learned valuable lessons moving forward.
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".
