First Flight Brasil Takes Off To Set A World Record

Paulo Iscold First Flight 2014 Designed in SolidWorks

Paulo Iscold is working to set another world record with his students – to design and build the world’s fastest four cylinder airplane.  At the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brasil, Professor Iscold teaches Aeronautical Engineering.  He is providing his students an experience of a lifetime.

Paulo Iscold First Flight SolidWorks Model

The Anequim project is in development at the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brasil where SOLIDWORKS is used as the design tool.

Prroject Anequim has been a team effort as Paulo told me “the team is composed not only by those who have dirty and bruised hands from all the work on the airplane, but also by many others who have supported us during the whole process.”

Last week they flew the CEA-311 Anequim for the first time, with Gunar Armin in command.

More information on the Anequim Project is available here.

I first met Paulo at SolidWorks World 2011 San Antonio where he shared his first Red Bull world record for single man flight with the SolidWorks Community, the story is here.

Paulo thank you for sharing your next adventure with the SolidWorks Community.  Marie
