Working on AkaFlieg projects is a very time-consuming thing to do in one’s free time. All AkaFlieg members – while also attending university – invest several hundred hours of work per year into AkaFlieg activities. The efforts seem to pay off, though: Today’s glider industry is largely dominated by engineers that once were active members of one of Germany’s many AkaFliegs at their respective university. Mechanical skills, the highly practical work at AkaFlieg and experience in overcoming challenges organising group projects and constructing airplane components are all highly useful for a career in aerospace engineering.
Our ambitious goals however would not be achievable without the kind and continuous support of our industry partners.
We would like to thank all of our donors and sponsors who helped – and continue to do so – a great deal with completing any and all of our projects by means of monetary and in-kind donations.
Our gratitude also extends to the Technischen Universität Darmstadt for their continuous support, the Verein der Ehemaligen der Akaflieg Darmstadt e.V. and the Vereinigung von Freunden der Technischen Universität zu Darmstadt e.V..
