Aeromodelling

Aero-modelling is the activity involving design, development and flying of small air vehicles. It is a stimulating and appealing way to learn, apply and understand science and engineering principles.

Aero-modelling in PRIME

Often as a kid we used to make paper planes and admire our artifacts. This craze of flight went on as we grew up. Imagine a smart-looking white, blue and red aircraft coasting smoothly along the dusty runway before taking off into the clear blue sky. Up in the air, making graceful loops, doing several rolls and dipping down before doing a vertical climb till it hovers like a helicopter, showing off the prowess of its pilot. A visual treat indeed except that the pilot isn't airborne but is firm on the ground peering anxiously up at his plane even as his fingers constantly moved over the controls of the radio box which guides his miniature aircraft.

Aero-modelling gives a good understanding of the roles each of these engineering skills play in real aircraft industry and provides enormous opportunities to develop innovative thinking and implementation. Aerodynamics is the science relating to the energy of gases in motion. To understand the science of aerodynamics, one must study the air and the machine that operates in it. Once you gain an understanding of the machine and its environment, you can appreciate the technological marvel of flight. One has only to watch a bird in flight for a short while and it becomes obvious that this living machine is capable of using the energy of the atmosphere to defy gravity.

According to the laws of aerodynamics, the bumblebee can’t fly either, but the bumblebee doesn't know anything about the laws of aerodynamics, so it goes ahead and flies anyway.

Aero-modelling generally involves small sized flying objects like Radio Controlled Aircraft and gliders. Although Aero-modelling looks like a lot of Aerospace/Aeronautical engineering topic, it involves a lot of interdisciplinary concepts from various streams of engineering - primarily Aerospace/ Aeronautical, Mechanical, Electronics, Electrical and Computer Science.

I don't know why I always liked aerospace engineering. I was in the 10th grade when I figured that's what I wanted to do. - Kalpana Chawla

Keeping this point in mind we started a course under EDUPRIME, exclusively for such curious students. Aero-modeling program is an initiative to help students to get them acquainted about aircraft, its working and its parts. The main objective is to help students to educate them about aircraft and hone their skills and become dexterous in modeling various aircraft.
