Assailings Falcons



Here at Assailing Falcons, SAE Aero design team, we work with a pioneering spirit that puts innovation at the heart of everything we do. We are a bunch of like-minded individuals with a common aim and are ready to sacrifice everything on the line whilst striving for excellence.

Being the most experienced and the most successful SAE Aero-Design team of VIT, we design and manufacture Advanced class aircrafts and take part in the SAE Aero Design competition held every year in the United States. While focusing on delivering results on the international stage, we also try to get creative in the process to incorporate a unique design every year.
