Shipping Information

Project management is a major part of the competition; as such teams are responsible for the shipment of the plane and all accessories needed. Wherever the plane is shipped, ensure that someone from the team will be able to pick it up. SAE International will not intervene with customs or act as an agent in receiving your shipment. As a suggestion, the team hotel would be the most logical choice, but be prepared to inquire about any costs or storage charges associated.

If you have any questions please email including your full name, university, and event attending.

All shipments are subject to the Airtel Plaza Hotel Fee Schedule.  Shipments can be sent to the following address after April 15, 2016:

Airtel Plaza Hotel
Attn: SAE Aero Design West
