A flying start for Norwich students

This summer students at the Norwich International Aviation Academy (IAA) will get the chance to build the first ever British electric light aircraft.

The aeroplane will be based on a prototype which has been built by NUNCATS, at their base at Old Buckenham Airfield, where it is being prepared now for test flights.

The project is a new partnership: NUNCATS provide the design and specialist support; the IAA at Norwich City College will provide the students; and NORSE and Saxon Air Flight Support will provide workshop and airside space for building and testing at the airport.
