Aeronautical Society of South Africa 2011 Aerospace Challenge A Low Speed Flight Competition

The goal of the competition is to conceptualise, design, construct and fly a radio controlled
model aircraft capable of taking off in as short a  distance as possible and then fly as
slowly as possible over a short course while carrying a pre-specified payload.

This challenge is aimed at two different groups of participants and is therefore divided into
two parts. The Inter-University Challenge will include the requirement to present and be
judged on the academic portion of the aircraft design. The Open Challenge will include
only the take off and flight portion of the competition and entries are accepted from any

This is intended to be a fun competition but with the intention to encourage interest in both
aviation and aeronautics amongst but not limited to learners and students.
