Monthly review - January 2023
After a short break during Christmas vacation, our company came back at work full of energies. In particular, we are now living an exciting new stage in which we are seeing our project moving forward. Indeed, the team had the best start for 2023 by beginning manufacturing several parts of the first fully electric race plane, UR-1. So, from the mind of our engineering team the project is definitely moving towards reality.
First of all, the team is working on one of our top-priorities, the fuselage. In the past weeks, we have already begun laminating it and now the "body" of UR-1 is concretely taking shape. Another part which is near to be finalized is one of the ailerons, which has been remade because the previous ones no longer met our quality standards. Secondly, our team has also manufactured and tested the aluminum plates of the control surface of the wing. In addition, thanks to our Cnc machine, we have also manufactured one of the push rod rod ends in high quality aluminum to actuate the aircraft's control surfaces. You can watch in the video below its milling.
Moreover, while a consistent part of our team is working on manufacturing UR-1, we left some space for the future. So, there are some of our experts already involved in the wind tunnel tests and in "drag analysis" of UG-2, the general aviation aircraft we have designed last year and we aim to start prototyping before the end of 2023.
In conclusion, the first month of January is almost gone and we are glad to see our company every day closest to accomplishing its goals.
