The AAIS partnered with Ngee Ann Polytechnic to organise the Aero Challenge 2013 on 29 August 2013. Aero Challenge 2013 is a country-wide aerospace competition opened to all secondary school students to help them find out more about radio-controlled flying.

The objective of the competition was to create, design and fly a quadcopter that could pick and drop a payload at designated obstacles.

30 teams participated in Aero Challenge 2013. Students were required to form a team of 3. Each team consist of a ‘pilot’ and ‘co-pilot’ and ‘air traffic controller’. The pilots were in charge of controlling the quadcopter using a flight app on either their phone or tablet gadgets while the ‘air traffic controller’ navigates and gives directional instructions to the pilots.

The competition provided an enriching yet fun-filled experience for the students as they learned to explore and work their design initiative and creativity, while acquiring new technical skills and knowledge in radio-controlled flying.
