SAB was founded by friends as a fraternal effort. SAB was intended to be a friendly, social, and inspiring environment where students could come together with a passion for aviation.
We, college students, are building an airplane. How cool is that? Mistakes will be made, obstacles will be circumvented, but we are all learning together.
SAB welcomes novice. SAB is structured so that everyone is qualified. All that SAB asks is that a person come into the organization ready to work, learn, and have fun. SAB was created so that students would have a chance to take on a hands-on project. What could be more hands-on than constructing an airplane?
