Get Involved

A wide variety of skills were needed for the Wright Flyer Project, ranging from analysis, design, construction and testing, to purchasing, historical, photography, record-keeping, facilities and business. AIAA retirees with a yen for building a vintage aircraft found this project particularly satisfying.

Since it was – and still is – a “labor of love”, the “requirements” for team members called for a commitment to be active i.e. devote some time each week: Design, aerodynamics, controls, propulsion, propellers, wood, fabric, rigging, testing, structures, weight, construction, carpentry, planning, administrative, historical, literature, publicity, photography, publications, business operations.
