Project Mission

The primary objective of Boeing Experimental Flight (BEF) is to provide an increased understanding of aircraft design and how it is affected by the challenges of green flight. BEF shall research, design, and test different aspects of an aircraft’s performance compared to current industry standards. Performing this type of research and development shall impart the future engineers with a stronger background in aircraft performance and design for the next generation of aircraft.

The first goal for Boeing Experimental Flight this semester is to continue performing test flights using our AL-37 control aircraft. The second goal is to further document this data similarly to previous semesters. The third goal is to finalize and begin CAD design/testing of a new wing configuration. The last goal is to begin manufacturing this new wing configuration for use in the following semester.
