How Our Team is Organized

The Flying Legion is comprised of five sub-teams of students, our academic leaders, and mentors from the community. There are six officer positions and tons of opportunities to find your place in our team.

What are the sub-teams and what do they do?

Each of our five sub-teams plays a vital role, and they all work together. Four of them focus on the robot itself and the other focuses on building our team and involving our community. Led by a captain, each sub-team welcomes new members each year and makes sure they find their unique place in the Flying Legion. Join us, we have a spot for you!
