Mangaluru: Team Challengers of Sahyadri College of Engineering & Management is hosting Aerophilia 2022 one of the most awaited fests of the year on November 11 , 12 and 13. Aerophilia is a three-day National-Level fest that has given wings to innovative thinking to budding engineers and innovators in the past and strives to continue to do so. With events that boost the healthy competitive spirit of our country’s youth, this event is a great way to gain exposure and widen one’s social and professional network. This fest is an opportunity for young school kids to come marvel at the wonders of science and meet and interact with eminent personalities to gain an interest in Science and technology.
This is the 5th edition of the fest and the other four have helped our team gain recognition nationwide. During the course of Aerophilia 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019, the participants of this two-day National event were expected to design a radio-controlled aircraft with the limitations regulated in its dimension and the propulsion system. The highlight of the event was the air shows conducted by internationally reputed RC flyers. Students from Elite institutions like IITs and NITs also participated in this competition. We even have a wide variety of cultural events for the students to participate in.
Unlike the previous years, this year we shall be expecting a crowd of about 4,000 people. An air show is being conducted by professional flyers. We will be having one of the Biggest Auto-Expo to happen in Mangalore with luxurious and exotic cars on display. The real attention grabber is the Hackathon that ISRO will be organising in Sahyadri College during the event which is based on NavIC and there will be a wide plethora of participants attending it.
