Ailerons – Terminés

Construire un avion à partir de plans demande beaucoup de travail. Nous vous proposons un aperçu du processus de production de nos ailerons

Les matériaux composites

A l’origine, les avions étaient composés de bois et de toile. Désormais, les techniques ont évolué. C'est pourquoi notre avion est fabriqué en composite. Mais qu'est-ce ?

Wings production

After many weeks of design work and a couple of weeks of hard work in terms of molds machining and carbon fiber lamination work with, at some places, up to 17 layers of fiber, we could successfully enclose the whole under a vacuum bag for 48h. It's funny to see it looks like a Frankenstein experience. 

Tomorrow, we will start an important phase : the resin infusion. 

We'll keep you updated and we look forward to flying in the world's first all-electric airplane race @airracee

To manufacture an aircraft, we first need a strong and reliable engineering.

Here, you can see our engineer Oliver Ensslin working on the 3D model of our UR-1 race plane that will fly in the world's first all-electric airplane race @airracee

Throwback

Even if carbon fiber is robust, sometimes you need to add stiffness. For this reason, we enclosed a layer of honeycomb in our ailerons. With a total mass of ~1.8kg, they shall resist to a load of more than 400kg !

✈ Last year, we started with the idea of designing electric aircraft which shall equal or surpass the performances of traditional piston engine airplanes. But there's a long way to go.

So, we decided to develop an electric  racer that will fly at the world's first all-electric airplane race championship  @airracee. We are proud to be the only registered Swiss team.

This project will help us gain experience for our future aircraft and forces us to have an airplane which is not only flying, but efficient.
