TMCC Lighter than Air Vehicle Competition

Truckee Meadows Community College hosts an annual Lighter Than Air (LTA) vehicle competition, sponsored by the Nevada NASA Space Grant Consortium.

In this event, each team designs, builds and flies radio-controlled LTA vehicles, and compete in "fastest-time" trials. Each member of the first-place team will win a TMCC scholarship for the following academic year.
