First general body meeting of Spring 2017

Hello everyone, AIAA at IIT will be hosting their first general body meeting of spring 2017 in Perlstein Hall auditorium, Thursday, September 14 from 1:00 ~ 2:00 PM.

Come meet the current members and learn about our current projects! This is a great opportunity to get some hands-on experience on aerospace!

The end of the UAV competition!

The journey of attempting to build and develop a drone for the UAV competition has been a rewarding learning experience. There is no better way to learn than to make mistakes and by that metric, the UAV team has learned a great deal.

Although the our team did not win in the competition, the experience of seeing all the other team’s builds has been eye-opening. Congratulations to the Israel Institute of Technology and Cornell for coming in first and second place respectively - and best wishes for next year to all of the competing teams!

Mikel takes to the sky!


They’ve always said that if you shoot for the stars, you’ll atleast land on the moon. We’re happy to announce that Mikel got the UAV off the ground and back on the pavement safely again. Some people call it low standards, we call it success.

So here’s to the team for successfully knocking off another flight for the competition and stay tuned for more posts like these!

Our drone is on the prone!


As finals draw near, the team is scrambling to get in as much flight time as possible in order to qualify for coming competition.

The drone might not be much of a looker right now but it will be. (Referencing that it’ll be equipped with a camera)
