The premises of the Akaflieg will be closed until further notice due to the corona pandemic.

“Students researching, building, and flying.”

– The guiding principle of the Akaflieg Stuttgart

The Akaflieg Stuttgart is a student organization at the University of Stuttgart. Our members share a passion for aviation and the goal to develop innovative and unique aircraft prototypes. For this reason, we invest the majority of our free time in our projects, in addition to our studies. Our concept for success is based on the fact that each of our members is trained in all areas of aircraft development. Students learn how to design and calculate components which we later manufacture ourselves and integrate into the aircraft. Thus, what we have learned in lecture can be directly applied.

You can support us too!

We are always looking for supporters. Without the many material and financial donations the implementation of our projects would not be possible.
