The aircraft was assembled for the first time in time for the rollout. Before that, all parts were painted in Altenrhein white at Egli Paint. To draw attention to the uniqueness of the aircraft, the airframe was foiled with lightning bolts. The plane was named Jarryd after the engineer at Sling Aircraft in South Africa, who often helped us with assembly questions.
More than 1,500 working hours are expected to assemble the aircraft, during which around 2,000 rivets have to be set. The installation of the avionics is currently being completed. In September, the entire electric powertrain is expected to be finally installed in the aircraft after completing our test program in July/August.
