Lehigh AIAA, in conjunction with Sigma Phi Delta, the engineering fraternity, hosted a resume workshop on Wednesday, November 11th. Students gathered in Neville 2 auditorium to hear a short presentation by Austin Keller about the major points in writing a successful resume. Mr. Keller emphasized that the whole goal of a resume is to get you an interview, and detailed different techniques to stand out from your competitors. After the presentation, the attendees broke into small groups led by club officers to get their own resumes checked and ask any questions about their internship, job, and grad school searches. If you missed the event, you may contact any of the AIAA executives to send you some helpful forms on how to write a resume.

As their final club event for the semester, several members of Lehigh AIAA took a trip to Lehigh Valley International Airport to visit the Lehigh Valley Flying Club and learn a little bit about the world of general aviation. Gracious clubmembers treated Lehigh students to doughnuts and coffee and showed them around the club's airplanes, answering questions about flying, aircraft, and pilot training. It was a thoroughly enjoyable morning for all involved, as the members of Lehigh AIAA learned a lot about what it takes to become a pilot, as well as the pleasures of having a pilot's license. Members of the Lehigh Valley Flying Club enjoyed meeting some fresh faces and sharing their love of flying (and of course their airplanes) with the group. With any luck, it will not be too long before Lehigh AIAA makes another appearance at the airport - hopefully one with an airborne component!

Yesterday, Lehigh AIAA, in conjunction with Pi Tau Sigma, the mechanical engineering honor society, hosted its first-ever aviation teardown event. Students gathered in one of the mechanical engineering classrooms in Packard Lab to take apart a variety of components donated by Gateway Aviation, Inc. located at the Allentown Queen City Municipal Airport. Armed with spanneres, socket wrenches, and hammers, students diassembled a Hartzell variable-pitch propeller and a Lycoming 0-235 airplane engine, and cut open a scrap aileron. Overall, everyone had a great time and learned a lot about general aviation parts, all while enjoying free pizza and a great chance to get some hands-on, practical experience.
