 The competition received over 340 registrations involving more than 1,000 students from over 100 institutions and schools across India. In a virtual set-up, the teams had to submit videos that captured the process of designing, building, and demonstrating a glider and a catapult launch mechanism to achieve maximum endurance/flight time. The flight time was measured as the time from launch to landing. 16 teams were shortlisted for the final merit list and awarded cash grants.

“The future of flight will be defined by the young minds of today. With the new Drone Rules 2021 paving way for an Aatmanirbhar drone industry in India, we are seeing a lot of interest amongst young engineers in unmanned flight. The Boeing-IIT National Aeromodelling Competition is an excellent platform that provides young minds a chance to get creative with their aeromodelling skills and be inspired to be a part of the aerospace ecosystem,” said Salil Gupte, president, Boeing India. “I thank all the students for their participation, especially in a virtual set-up this year, and congratulate them for their incredible creations,” added Gupte.

The Boeing-IIT National Aeromodelling Competition was launched in 2013 with a vision to provide a unified national platform for students interested in aerospace and related engineering disciplines to learn and demonstrate their aeromodelling expertise.
