Welcome to SAE Aero Design West 2019!
The SAE Aero Design West 2019 Event Team extends a warm and sunny Southern California welcome to you, your team members, and supporters. Aero Design West is back at our usual venues in Southern California and we hope to make this event a tremendous learning opportunity and friendly competition. Congratulations on the significant effort and resources you have poured into preparing to compete with your teams. We continue to be impressed by both the technical innovation and the spirit of competition between teams. We look forward to meeting you at the Airtel Plaza Hotel in Van Nuys, CA on Friday, April 5. Please join us Friday evening at the Welcome Ceremony to gather important detailed information on the plan for the Flight Competition starting on Saturday morning and to enjoy a pizza dinner with student teams from all over the world. Over 100 volunteers are preparing to help execute the event and looking forward to meeting you, including many Engineers from the local Aerospace industry and veteran modelers and pilots from host RC club: The Valley Flyers. We are excited to see your aircraft fly on Saturday and Sunday at Apollo XI RC Field. We hope to improve the event each year by creating new challenges in the rules and responding to the valuable feedback you provide. Please don’t hesitate to ask a volunteer for help or provide feedback to SAE staff. Thank you for committing your time and sharing your talent with this competition and best wishes for success.
