The ISU GoFly Team is creating a personal flying device!

ISU GoFly is a relatively new engineering club tasked with designing a personal flying device that is safe, compact, and sustainable. The goal is to create a personal flying device by the Spring of 2020.

Current Demonstrator Aircraft:

This Fall we’ve been working on refining our aircraft and designing a demonstrator (shown above) for testing purposes. It’s also cheaper & easier to start smaller before going full scale. In the Spring the demonstrator aircraft will be manufactured, tested, and flown.
