What is Lambach Aircraft?

Lambach Aircraft is a society run by students, located at the faculty of Aerospace Engineering of Delft University of Technology. The main goal is to give students valuable engineering experience through challenging projects relating to the design and manufacture of fixed wing aircraft. The society believes that the engineers of tomorrow cannot thrive on theoretical knowledge alone, but should be able to solve problems as a member of an international team.

What do we do?

Lambach Aircraft aims to make its members better engineers. Members are able to apply their theoretical knowledge from lectures, developing useful practical skills to benefit their future careers. As part of an international engineering team, members improve their communication, teamwork, and management skills.

Experience with the practical aspects of aircraft design and production is key in the aerospace industry. That’s why Lambach Aircraft familiarises its members with not only the design process, but also with the test and production of fixed-wing aircraft. We use modern materials, including composites, and introduce computer-based techniques such as CNC and 3D printing. Once unmanned aircraft have been built, we work with the Leidsche Luchtvaart Club, carrying out test flights to inform improvements.


The foundation is non-profit, and financially dependent on sponsorship and donations by companies and private individuals, in addition to small membership fees. All donations and sponsorship directly benefit the main goals of the foundation.
