"Miners in Flight"

Who We Are

Miner Aviation, formerly known as Advanced Aero Vehicle Group, was founded in 1999 to design, build, and fly a heavy lift competition aircraft. In 2007, the team had leftover composite materials and was inspired to make this leftover material into a new project. Thus, the rocketry side of AAVG was born. In 2016, the aircraft and rocket teams split into two individual organizations, each focusing around their respective competition. Miner Aviation is now dedicated solely to the construction and development of competition aircraft.

 

Get Involved

Joining the Miner Aviation team is a great chance to explore aerospace engineering and design work. While the team is focused around aerospace engineering, other disciplines such as electrical and mechanical engineering can also be applied through individual subgroups. Anyone can join and contribute, regardless of major or previous experience. Each member must be on one subgroup but may join as many as they can handle.

In order to join the team, prospective members need to attend our weekly meetings. There you can speak with President Josh Bishop about officially joining a team and subgroup.

Weekly meetings every Wednesday at 6:30 pm in Toomey 140.
