🌍 World Speed ​​Record for Switzerland 🇨🇭? Our latest calculations lead us to believe that our @pieaeronefs UR-1 Swiss all-electric race plane will be able to reach 302 knots. For comparison, the actual world speed record for an electric aircraft is held by @siemens since 2017 and is set at 182 knots. @rollsroycegroup, with its ACCEL program, will soon try to beat this record and attain more than 259 knots. With 302 knots, our race aircraft might be faster than any electric aircraft that has come before. But the only way to know it, is to fly! An electric powertrain is something quite new in aviation and many data are still missing. So we are, for now, not able to provide a more precise estimate. Breaking the #worldspeedrecord for an electric aircraft is not our mission. But if this happens, we will for sure be extremely proud and happy 🤩 #pieaeronefs #aviation #green #flygreen #sustainable #electric #raceplane #competition #airracee #aircraft #switzerland #suisse #schweiz #swiss #record #world #worldrecord # speed #electric #electrical #racing #proud #facts #innovation #betterfuture #better #fast #fly #swissaviation #futureisnow

Our vision of the future Did you ever wonder why we chose to build an all-electric race aircraft and why we decided to throw ourselves into this journey? Behind our project, there is the dream of an engineer and pilot that had a visionary idea: fasten your seatbelt for a flight in Marc Umbricht's mind and tap on the link in bio to begin this imaginary trip… Bon voyage! ✈️ #pieaeronefs #aviation #electric #electrical #racing #raceplane #competition #airracee #aircraft #switzerland #suisse #schweiz #swiss #manufacturing #ceo #portrait #fun # 3d # 3dprinting #rcplane #proud #happy #project #innovation # innovative #pilotlife #pilot #pilots #motivation #startup
@pieaeronefs we are making the Swiss First all-electric Race Aircraft: the UR-1. Its first flight is expected for Q4 2021.

Background work Before we laminated our wings, particularly positioned our honeycomb inserts, Fabrice had to undergo a substantial preparation work. After receiving the engineering drawings, he then drawn coordinates on the mold for a better visualization. #pieaeronefs #aviation #green #flygreen #sustainable #electric #raceplane #competition #airracee #aircraft #switzerland #suisse #schweiz #swiss #wing #wings #engineering #team #nofilter #tape #carbon #carbonfiber #fly #firstflight #preparation #design #innovation

The best visitors! Today, we were pleased to receive last year graduate mechatronics students from the @etmlausanne After an introduction to our project, including correlation between cars and aircraft, we went for a tour in our workshop in La Sarraz. Naturally, we had to immortalize this moment around our wing which is now in the vacuum bag with the last honeycomb layers! At the end, under the sun with some refreshments, we could spend some times all together and discuss about the next challenges in mobility. Do you want to visit?

Intl. Day of Biological Diversity 🌍 Today, we celebrate biodiversity all over the world. As an electrical aircraft manufacturer, it's an opportunity for us to talk about aviation pollution. The CO2 emissions of aviation is not that high to what me might expect, however this amount is still substantial. In order to keep an overview about what are facts, we wrote a little blog about what challenges is and will be modern aviation confronted to.
