Mizzou AeroTigers

Thank you for your interest in supporting the Mizzou AeroTigers!

As Mizzou’s only aviation design team we aim to provide University of Missouri – Columbia students with a professional and inclusive environment to learn about aircraft design, manufacturing, and flight, and develop hands-on, industry-related skills through participation in the annual AIAA Design, Build, Fly competition. The competition is a complex team project that encompasses every aspect of small-scale aircraft design, manufacturing, testing, and flight. Please follow the link to our Instagram to check out photos from our build process, last year’s competition, and member spotlights. We give our members opportunities to network with aerospace industry professionals, compete on an international scale, build useful engineering skills, and engage effectively with the community. Involvement in this organization has helped current members and alumni the skills and abilities to acquire jobs at Boeing, Textron, Spirit AeroSystems, LMI Aerospace, Black and Veatch, and more.

On April 13th, 2023, our team members will attend the 2023 AIAA DBF Fly-off in Tucson, Arizona. The four-day event gives the invited 110 teams the opportunity to fly their competition aircraft and show off their designs. Our organization is attempting to fund six of our members to travel to Tucson to attend the event on behalf of the University of Missouri. Our funding goal of $1,500 will cover the travel costs that the University of Missouri has not already funded, including the rental vehicles while in Tucson, and a portion of the lodging costs. Every $500 raised beyond our initial goal of $1,500 would allow us to take one more team member to the competition in Arizona.

Again, thank you for considering supporting our organization. We are incredibly excited for this upcoming competition year and appreciate any donations that help lead to our success! Please feel free to reach out to us at any time for more information regarding the competition, our team, or our fundraising goals at lmtwpx@umsystem.edu.
