First Flight for Wind Fisher’s Prototype

We are happy to announce Wind Fisher’s first flight !


August 26, 2021 will go down as an important day in history for Wind Fisher. Armel Guillon, engineering intern at Wind Fisher, and co-founder Garrett Smith achieved the first flight for Wind Fisher’s developmental prototype. The 1.2m span cylinder flew for a total of 27 seconds, validating several key aspects of Wind Fisher’s architecture.

Thanks Armel Guillon for your passion and dedication to the project. What a first success!

And a special thanks to Bernard Pelurson and family at the Camping Rural de la Chênaie for allowing Wind Fisher to use their field as a test site.
