Every year since 1984, VFS organizes a Student Design Competition. This competition challenges undergraduate and graduate students to design a vertical flight vehicle to respond to specific requirements. Georgia Tech has participated to the competition since its implementation, winning over 20 competitions and consistently placing in the top 3.
The event is sponsored in a rotating basis by Airbus, Boeing, Bell, Leonardo Helicopters, Sikorsky, Lockheed Martin, and the US Army. More information on the event can be found in the VFS SDC website.
