UAV Competitions

Cal State LA is delighted to organize student-designed model aircraft competitions in 2024.  It is the second year for our CSU 3D-Printed Fixed-Wing Aircraft Competition, held on the Cal State LA campus, and the first for the California Unmanned Aerial Systems Competition, hosted by our partner, the Mojave Air & Space Port at their world-famous facility.

Join the Competition

We welcome college and university teams, whether as part of senior-design programs or student clubs, to join us at one or both Southern California competitions.
