Merge Clarification

1/29/2021 10:53:49 AM   SAE Aero Design Series

Merging of Validation East and Validation West Events have been completed over the weekend.

As result, SAE now has two websites on sae.org for students to watch: SAE Aero Design Knowledge and SAE Aero Design Validation.

The Validation West website on sae.org has been deleted as all student team registrations have been moved to June Validation Event. Once we review all Notice of Intent submissions, we will update this list appropriately.

Changes have been made to the saeaerodesign.com website as well; changes teams will notice are the following:

  • The removal of Validation West event.
  • Validation East has been renamed to accurately reflect June Validation Event.
  • Documents if submitted have been moved to accurate location.
  • Teams will see one or both events pending on registration: SAE Aero Design Knowledge and SAE Aero Design Validation.

New deadlines students will see online (both websites):
