Monthly review - September 2021


Summer is slowly coming to an end. By now, some of our staff are still enjoying relaxing holidays. Once they come back, they will resume the hard work of building the first Swiss all-electric race aircraft.

At the same time, we hope you could enjoy your Summer and spend some time with your beloved ones.

During July and August, we were not closed and a substantial amount of work was delivered mostly in background. We prepared a new temperature-controlled oven to cure our future composite parts made of pre-preg (pre-impregnated carbon fiber). The lamination technique we will be using for our parts.

Our new 8.5m-long temperature-controlled oven (up to 150 ° C) is available for rent. Send us an email for a quote.

Because of some non-critical irregularities we found in a carbon fiber type we used for our wing, we decided to rebuild it, using a "pre-preg" process. So, we expect our first flight this Winter.

About this new process, we are also transforming all our wood molds in new molds made of carbon fiber. They are lighter, can be put in the oven and we can laminate many times the same part.

As "failing" is learning, our rejected wing will now be showcased at the Electrifly-In Switzerland. It will be prepared in such a way that people will learn a lot and see something you normally never see!

Come visit us and get in touch!
