Hello everyone!

We are the LTU Aero SAE Team for 2023, and our goal is to create a wooden RC plane to represent LTU in the SAE Aero International Competition next May. We are a dedicated group of Mechanical Engineering students, with many of us looking to go into the Aerospace Industry once we graduate. To ensure that we are successful next May, we need to do a lot of fundraising over the next year to pay for our plane's fabrication and for our transportation, as the competition will be in Texas. We thank you so much for contributing whatever you can to help us achieve our goals! 

All donations are 100% tax deductible, and if you are affiliated with a company and would like the company to be a sponsor, we will put your company's logo on our plane. This is a great way to get some recognition for your company at the international SAE Aero competition!

Our team is made up of the following members:

Gavin Smith - Team Captain, Kyle Hennessey - Co-Captain/Wing Logistics Lead, Ronnie Wood - Wing Design Lead, Jimmy Schiavi - Fuselage Logistics/Design Lead, Jamal Braxton - Fuselage Logistics/Design Lead, Bri Staton-Dauphin - Tail Design Lead, Daniel DaCorte - Landing Gear Design Lead, Sean Endress - Electronics Lead
