Notice: 2018 Technical Inspection Checklists Updated!

2/20/2018 12:05:28 PM   SAE Aero Design Series

SAE Aero Design has made a small revision to the Technical Inspection checklists for 2018. We have added a line item for inspectors to confirm that each aircraft is in compliance with that Rule 2.5.2: If an aircraft is equipped with a wheeled landing gear, the aircraft must have some form of ground steering mechanism for positive directional control during takeoffs and landings. Aircraft may not rely solely on aerodynamic control surfaces for ground steering.

These updated Technical Inspection checklists can be found under the Series Resources tab at
