Monthly review - February 2023
Engineering work implies to be brave enough to question also what you have done in the last months and, if it doesn't meet the quality requirements set, to change it.
Indeed, the efforts made for the purpose of respecting these standards have led us to revise also the "bulkheads chapter" in our "UR-1 book". So, the engineering team has made some adjustments in the design of bulkheads. The function of a bulkhead can be often underrated, but actually this part is really important in an aircraft for at least two reasons: it supports the structure of the fuselage and it helps in maintaining its shape.
As always, every time we need to manufacture a part of our aircraft, our engineers carry out another huge work that consists in producing accurate drawings to let our composite technicians and experts make the design concrete. Consequently, this month, in our workshop, it began also the manufacturing of the bulkheads, while part of the team is still working on the fuselage. In addition, during last weeks, the team has been committed to the integration of the control system in the wing, which is currently underway and represents another step toward the completion of the first Swiss fully electric race plan, the UR-1.
Moreover, we are already beginning to detail the design of our next prototype: the UG-2. In particular, some progress has been made on the batteries and on the fuselage.
Lastly, we would like to conclude our monthly report by sharing with you a good news: we are thrilled to announce that our company will take part in Aero Friedrichshafen show next (19-22 April), as reported in the list of the exhibitors. So, if some of you are planning to participate to the event, we would be delighted to welcome you to our stand and offer you a coffee!
