UMSAE Aero exhibition opening at Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada

Grand opening event happening Saturday, Feb. 4 from 1-3 p.m.

January 24, 2023 — 

UMSAE Aero is thrilled to announce the upcoming opening of a temporary exhibit at the Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada! The exhibit will be open until June 2023 and showcases past and present aircrafts designed and built by the UM’s Aero team. The team has placed on the podium of the international SAE Aero Design competition for the last five seasons that they’ve taken part in, including winning first overall in both 2018 and 2019. 

The team is very excited for this opportunity to inspire high-school and university students to get involved with STEM and aerospace by showcasing some of the incredible opportunities that students can be part of by joining engineering student organizations. Students who have been on UMSAE have learned some incredible skills and have gained hands-on experience with designing aircraft, off-road buggies and race cars.

The team’s project manager, Lucas Audette would like to give “A huge thank you to Malcolm Symonds, the former UMSAE faculty advisor who got this collaboration off the ground for us to display our designs in a beautiful venue, surrounded by a collection of gorgeous antique aircraft”.

A grand opening event is happening on Saturday, February 4th from 1-3 pm. The event will include guest speakers and a Q & A with the SAE Aero team. We hope to see you there!
