Chicken Wings - students' aircraft team

Students from the Institute of Aerospace Engineering (IAE) formed a team named BUT Chicken wings (over 25 students interested in aircraft engineering coming).

The team participated in several international competitions:

- Air Cargo Challenge. The students designed, manufactured and flew an airplane made from carbon fibre composites flying fastest with a medium payload. It was designed to reach maximum flight performance with speed and manoeuvrability in turning. The team was awarded 14th place from 28 teams as the best scoring newcomers.

- Design, Build and Fly held in Wichita (in Kansas, USA). The objective of the competition (organized by AIAA and supported by companies Cessna and Raytheon missiles) was to design two aircrafts, one production aircraft and a second cargo aircraft capable of transporting production aircraft. Team BUT Chicken wings was invited to fly off in Wichita and flew in for 57th place from 143 competing teams from 32 countries around a world.
