glider making


What is this workshop about?

If you want to learn about flying objects and don’t know where to start, E-CAD TECHNOLOGIES gives you just the right platform with a Balsa Glider workshop.

Designing and fabricating a glider helps one understand the basic idea behind flight and the significance of various parts of the airplane. The workshop helps the participant understand aerodynamics, controls, and stability in the simplest manner.

By tweaking slightly with various parts of the glider, one can actually make it perform some interesting aerobatics. This will help the participant understand the basic principles of flight.

Course Outcomes

  • Build your own Chuck Glider with Balsa Wood.
  • Learn the Basics of Aircraft flight.
  • Initiation into the field of Aeronautical engineering through Aeromodelling.
