Fabrications


What does the Fabrications Team do?

The fabrications team is responsible for manufacturing and assembling components of the plane. We are in charge of transforming and integrating designs into a physical end product. Once completed, the plane is tested for its integrity and performance. Being in a machine shop means a completely hands-on experience. We conduct safety training for each tool we use.

As a fabrications team member, you will:

  • Utilize foam cutting tools to produce wing, horizontal stabilizer, and vertical stabilizer
  • Select composites in the manufacturing process for most parts and subsystems of plane
  • Cure and create high quality composite parts by using vacuum bagging techniques
  • Install electronics hardware and wiring; ensure electronic signals are properly programmed
