The core idea of an Akaflieg is research on the flying object. From our founding in 1920 on our members engaged in our projects according to their ability and interests. That includes the flight performance measurements at the Idaflieg summer meeting, as well as our own projects always oriented towards the current tasks and problems of aircraft construction or new ideas. To realise such projects we invest a lot of time and work at our workshop and are cooperating with several institutes, which are also enabling us to publish our scientific work as project-, bachelor or master theses. We can look back at many constructional and aeronautical achievements in our long history.
