Euro-ENAER

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki


Euro-ENAER was a Dutch aircraft manufacturer. It was formed in 1996 and located in Den Helder at De Kooy Airfield.

History[edit]

Euro-ENAER came into existence after the Dutch company Aviation Maintenance showed interest in further development of the Chilean ENAER ENAER Ñamcú (Chilean Spanish for "young eagle", or "eaglet"). ENAER ceased developing the Ñamcú after certification proved to be too expensive: Chilean certification was not recognized elsewhere, so the resulting airplane could not be sold outside Chile.

Collaboration between ENAER, investors and the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering, Delft University of Technology made founding Euro-ENAER possible. Certification of the aircraft and its components became the responsibility of the University.

Bankruptcy[edit]

The renewed aircraft was renamed Eaglet. The JAR-23 airworthiness certificate was issued July 13, 2001. Certification for design ownership and manufacturing rights were to follow, but it required more time than planned. As a result, Euro-ENAER ran into financial difficulties and filed for bankruptcy. The sole Eaglet prototype and all inventory were taken over by ENAER.
