We are Team Onyx India, a student-run, non-profit, Aero Design Club of K.J. Somaiya College of Engineering, Vidyavihar. We design and fabricate Remote-Controlled Aircrafts and compete in numerous Aero Design and Aero-Modelling competitions like SAE International and Boeing National Aero-Modelling Competition. We also conduct many events such as Multi-Drone, a drone racing competition and Aero-Modelling Workshops for students who are interested in the field of aviation. Our team not only focuses on popularizing the field of Aero-Modelling and providing a foundation for many other enthusiasts, but also to improve at different aspects of the aviation field and become better with each passing day.
Autodesk Industries held an event at CIDCO exhibition centre Vashi in 2016 where we displayed our model.
Abhiyantriki is K. J. Somaiya College’s annual technical fest which boasts participation from organizations like DRDO, ISRO, BARC and in 2017, Team Onyx showcased their model to a footfall of over 15000 people
