After manufacturing, every part has to be inspected by our engineers. Here is a wooden part and we want to make sure they have the right dimensions. #pieaeronefs #swisstech #technology #hightech #aviation #instagramaviation #avgeek #space #innovation #innovative #aerospace #zeroemission #zeroemitting #greenerfuture #climatechange #globalwarming #electric #electrical #raceacing #raceplane #competcraft #swiss #schweiz #swiss #manufacturing
Once a mold has been laminated, it needs some more work. Sanding and post-curing are part of these steps. #pieaeronefs #swisstech #technology #hightech #aviation #instagramaviation #avgeek #space #innovation #innovative #aerospace #zeroemission #zeroemitting #greenerfuture #climatechange #globalwarming #electric #electrical #raceacing #raceplane #competcraft #swiss #schweiz #swiss #manufacturing #engineering #hardwork
