Penn Aerospace Club


Penn Aerospace Club

The Penn Aerospace Club (PAC) is a student-led organization at the University of Pennsylvania.



Penn’s Aerospace Hub since 2014

PAC serves to educate budding engineers, entrepreneurs, and enthusiasts in the aerospace and flight industries. Through the club’s projects and events, we hope to elevate passion for space around campus. The club is divided into four sub-teams: High-Powered Rocketry, Balloon, Jet Engine, and Aircraft. Each team strives to achieve excellence in its technical projects, collaborative work, and community events.  As the primary aerospace-focused group on campus, PAC is comprised of the best aerospace talent Penn has to offer. We serve a wide audience, with over 100 members, and the club continues to grow every semester with new passionate recruits.
