1. Aircraft Design, Fabrication & Flying

The knack to flying is learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss - Douglas Adams

At the dawn of the twentieth century, having explored and conquered all land, man turned his eyes skywards. For much of history he has been trying to conquer this seemingly unbeatable foe. The skies continued to elude him until finally, the Wright brothers finally conquered the skies one windy morning in the winter of 1903. Since then the aircraft industry has exploded, and aero planes have captured the imagination of the human race.
This workshop by AEROLANCE gives the participants an opportunity to understand the theory behind the functioning of aircrafts and aircraft design. It makes the participants innovate by coming up with their own design of mini aircrafts and fabricating them as per their design. This workshop takes the participants through a series of interactive lectures and design sessions supplemented by practical sessions, thereby providing a complete learning experience.

Course Details

Workshop Structure:

  • Understanding Flight.
  • Design of Aircraft.
  • Fabrication of Aircraft.
  • Flying using Remote Control.

Three awards will be given to the participating teams in terms of Best Design, Best Fabrication and Innovation. The names of the recipients will be put up on our website permanently and they will also be provided with certificate of merit.


2 days (8 hours per day)




Rs 7500/- per team for the standard kit and Rs 12500/- for the complete kit.

Participants can register in team containing maximum of 5 members This workshop is dedicated to learn the technology behind making of aircrafts. It help and encourage the participants to solve real time problem involved in making of glider aircraft, besides this live demonstration of RC plane will also be shown so that student will stimulate their theoretical knowledge in to practical.
