It’s up in the air! Students of the study program “International Project Engineering” built a plane in a regular lecture. That’s a unique project in Germany which started in the winter semester 2012. More than 160 students in changing teams participated in over 20.000 working hours to assemble 36.000 single parts. This performance requires not just endurance, courage and confidence, but also trust and good planning.
On the 6th of October 2018 the time was ready for the maiden flight of the Van’s Aircraft RV-12. With guests from politics, press, university and all interested parties from all over Germany we celebrated the official maiden flight.
