Spin.Works’ Autopilot controls first public flight of the PAIC SP1 unmanned aircraft

Spin.Works is proud to announce the successful conclusion of flight tests and first public demonstration of autonomous flight capability of the SP1 platform developed by the Portuguese Aerospace Industry Consortium (PAIC), of which Spin.Works is a member.

The autonomous flight of the SP1 platform was made possible through the configuration, validation and testing of Spin.Works’ autopilot system, internally developed to equip its own unmanned aircraft, such as the S20.

The flight testing campaign took place in October and November 2013 at the Mirandela Airfield, with the collaboration of PAIC personnel.
