Researching, repairing and learning to fly aircraft – to do so, 60 students from RWTH and FH Aachen Universities have teamed up with the Aachen Scientific Aviation Association (FVA). They meet regularly in their spare time and are currently working on an electric propulsion system to bring gliders back to the launch point. Lately though, this has hardly been possible as the workshop has fallen victim to repeated short circuits and power outages. HELUKABEL donated various cables for its renovation. “We've now finished the ceiling installation in one room. But that’s just the start,” reports Leo Girbig, chairman of the FVA. “As an association, we depend on donations so we’re very grateful for HELUKABEL’s support.”
