Flug­wissen­schaftliche Ver­einigung Aachen (1920) e.V.

Are you interested in designing airplanes and researching concepts, that protect the environment? Would you like to experience the immense energy available in the atmosphere and how it can be used to fly long distances without propulsion? We are an association of students at Aachen University of Applied Sciences and RWTH Aachen University in which you can research projects in the field of aviation. In addition to the research projects, you will learn how the development, construction, certification and maintenance of state-of-the-art composite aircraft work and which techniques and regulations are in place. We also give you the opportunity to get a pilot's license and experience the impact of your own engineering work. We are looking forward to every student who wants to participate in our mission, no matter which course of studies you are and whether you have ever been involved in engineering or not.
