Avionics Club

Club Moderator: Mr. Bob Prost (rprost@vianney.com

The AVIATION club is an academic club where students are challenged to design, build, and fly a small model aircraft. Direct supervision (and mentoring) is provided on-site by actual Boeing Aerospace Engineers, who volunteer their time to teach the students the fundamentals of basic aerodynamics. Once the aircraft is completed, it is entered into a regional high-school competition at Washington University.

Vianney's "Soaring Griffins" team won the "Best Design" Award at the spring 2017 meet!

Eligibility: All Vianney students with solid math, science & communication skills are welcome

Season: Season starts in mid-January and typically ends in early May.

Meetings: Every Tuesday afternoon (more frequently as the competition date approaches later in spring)

Possible Activity Points: 15 points
