At the previous meeting on Sunday, September 22nd, the Executive Board of the Yale Undergraduate Aerospace Association announced that the Boeing Company has decided to sponsor YUAA. After meeting with the CEO of Boeing at the CEID Dedication this past February, members of the Finance Team kept in contact. The Boeing grant is particularly geared towards funding the exciting UAV project. The UAV team has been hard at work designing and implementing a mechanism for fitting their RC plane into the rocket from which it will be deployed.
YUAA is thrilled to have this sponsorship from a company which has been such a leader in aerospace innovation, and is confident that with Boeing’s support, the UAV project will be successful. The organization hopes to pursue a lasting partnership with the Boeing in the future.
