ATTENTION: UCR UAV PROJECT
REQUESTS FINANCIAL SUPPORT
We have been supporting the UCR Engineering Students UAV
Project since last year, with training, supplies, use of our field,
and the services of Jim Bronowski as Safety Pilot. They did pretty
well for a first time in the AUVSI Competition in Maryland. Now,
they are preparing for this year's contest, this time with an
aircraft of their own design. They had a large amount of funding
from a UCR Professor and several corporate sponsor last year, and
are now seeking contributions from the public. With a number of
students and a large aircraft to transport to the east coast for the
meet, along with living expenses during the competition, let's face
it, guys, they need money!
Click Here for a letter explaining their needs. This should be
discussed at the next club meeting on April 18.
