We are an enthusiastic group of students united by a common passion for high-speed aircraft, whose mission is to promote innovation in the aerospace industry



The Georgia Tech Supersonics Club (GTSC) is an organization established in 2023 with the aim of introducing high-speed aerodynamics and propulsion systems to the Georgia Tech club space.

Our goal is to offer a dynamic platform for both undergraduate and graduate students at Georgia Tech, empowering them to apply their academic knowledge to real-world challenges and preparing them for the professional landscape. With a highly integrated design process, our members gain invaluable experience by collaborating across subsystems, enabling them to develop a well-rounded understanding of systems beyond their chosen discipline.

Through our pursuit of faster, more efficient designs, the club strives to foster groundbreaking research in the field of transonic and supersonic aircraft. This encompasses various facets of aeronautical design, including aeroacoustic techniques to mitigate sonic boom effects, development of fully autonomous high-speed control systems, and exploration of new aerodynamic and propulsion designs to push the boundaries of speed and efficiency.

The first major milestone that GTSC aims to achieve is breaking the Guinness World Record for the fastest remote-controlled (RC) aircraft plane. To coincide with the guidelines that the Guinness World Record organization has put in place, the aircraft's takeoff weight must be less than 25 kg, have no air-assisted takeoff, be fully remote-controlled, and use an air-breathing engine. This project is inspired by the late Project Boom, an Oklahoma-based organization led by Colin Watson who sought to break this same record.  

The record is currently held by German pilot Niels Herbrich, who flew his RC plane to a top speed of 478 mph (Mach 0.62).
