The RUM Air Aero Design team from the Mayagüez Campus (RUM) of the University of Puerto Rico (UPR), completed a brilliant performance by obtaining first place in the technical presentation of the Micro Class; second place in the technical reports for the Regular Class, Micro Class and Advanced Class categories; and in the flight test part, they got a second place overall for the Micro Class, third place in Flight Performance for Regular Class, and overall for the Regular and Advanced Class categories, in the SAE Aero Design competition, held this summer in Lakeland, Florida.

The RUM ambassadors, whose group is attached to the Department of Mechanical Engineering (INME), had the challenge of designing and developing aircraft that had a face-to-face part dedicated to the mission of the aircraft, divided into an inspection day and two days of flight; as well as the writing of a report and a technical presentation, which took place virtually during the semester.
