Workshop Details

No. of days: 1

Team Strength: 2 per team

Certification: TM Aerosports

A glider is a heavier-than-air aircraft that is supported in flight by the dynamic reaction of the air against its lifting surfaces, and whose free flight does not depend on an engine. Most gliders do not have an engine, although motor-gliders have small engines for extending their flight when necessary and some are even powerful enough to take off.
Gliders are principally used for the air sports of gliding, hang gliding and paragliding. Perhaps the simplest and most familiar types are toys such as the paper plane and balsa wood glider.

The workshop spans for 1 day* which includes the theory, hands-on, fabrication, and testing sessions. No pre-requisites are required to attend this workshop. Our training pattern caters to need of beginners as well as professionals and graduates. Participants will learn all the basics and also the advanced concepts.
Participants, at the end of the workshop, will be thorough with the concepts, technology, software, and hardware taught to them during the RC Aircraft workshop. With the knowledge and experience they gather at the workshop, the students will be capable of fabricating not only a Rubberband powered Glider, but also different interesting and innovative projects on their own from scratch.
  • Intro to Aeromodelling
  • Classification of Aircrafts
  • Degrees of Freedom
  • Nomenclature
  • Gliders
  • Fabrication of a Rubberband powered Glider
Hands-on training is always two steps ahead in making the students understand the concepts of engineering than regular classrooms. This practical insight into the subjects they study makes them more and more confident and thus makes it easy for them to gain a good position in a company. Our workshops are not just about certificates. We aim at making each and every student capable and confident enough to excel in the corporate world. Our workshops provide an edge to the students.
The Glider workshop is certified by TM Aerosports. All the participants would be getting a certificate of participation. Top performing teams will get a certificate of merit. The performance would be evaluated during the workshop through interactive sessions and competitions. The workshop coordinators will be given a certificate of appreciation.
