Aachen Flugzeugbau

Aachener Segelflugzeugbau Gmbh

Flugwissenschaftliche Vereinigung Aachen e.V.


Informal beginnings caused the formation of groups of engineers at universities with the aim of scientific and practical education. Aachen built a small series of trainers during 1917-18.


The first groups were formed in 1920 in Aachen, Darmstadt and Berlin-Charlottenburg, but others soon followed.


In 1920 Aachen Flugzeugbau was successful with gliders built to the designs of Prof Klemperer. In 1921 the name was changed to Aachener Segelflugzeugbau GmbH and in 1923 the K. F. glider-related light airplane (also a Klemperer design) was in production. In 1924 a two-seat low-wing monoplane was also flown.

Flugwissenschaftliche Vereinigung Aachen e.V. are a group of students from the RWTH Aachen and the FH who devoted themselves to the research, building and flying of gliders. The Flight Research Association was founded in 1920 and is a club at the RWTH Aachen.
 
In return for the 300 per year paid flying itself is free for everyone. Aachen trains glider and motor glider pilots, as well as tow pilots.
 
They organize and support various courses to flight instructors, provide flying training, the training of workshop leaders and parachute packers.
 
With ties to many institutes of the University and the University of Applied Sciences, there is the opportunity to publish scientific work in the form of Theses. In addition, the activity in the FVA is recognized both at the FH and at RWTH as an internship.
 
Working is on a project with Airbus, which deals with the testing and construction of mini-flaps, an alternative surface flap system for flight control.
 
With a very diverse fleet of aircraft, members perform all necessary work.
