Ok enlighten us! Tell us why this so called "African Space Research" is the first to build a plane and prove to us that no other "african being" or nation built a plane before.

This thing will never fly, hes building it in his back yard, it makes wonder whether he is trying to build a space shuttle in his shed

I'm doing engineering, with a healthy background in fluid dynamics, thermodynamics (gas turbines etc etc), jet engines and the likes....so I pretty much know your Skyhawk will never reach anywhere near its stated specifications, just by looking at it. Even basic calculations aren't necessary.

Has nothing to do with the country. It's about those group of people (what ever nationality). It's obvious to me that most of SSC is about buidings, economies, investments etc etc (which is fine). If there were more people interested in fields like engineering and science, then they would be joining me and a few other in laughing at this idea.

It's not so much they we're "hating" on them. Well done for atleast trying , but these guys are basically claiming that they're going to turn the world of aviation upside down with their small homebuilt plane....please . Hence I believe this is some kind of joke.

Those guys should be getting commendations and not condemnations. This is the problem with Africans......always hating on each other for no freaking reason.

Who ever made the first plane did not build it in a "special enviroment" but probably in front of his house.

That thing is not going to go even 15 feet in the sky.

You have to commend their ambition though.

Hey, they're trying, gotta give them that. And why do they think making a plane has something to do with spaceflight?

But send them back 100 years and now we're talking.

They need to build a ginormous slingshot and use that to launch their "plane", otherwise that thing will never get off the ground.

You guys have problems.

It is a great achievement for someone to create such an aircraft with limited funding and limited aid from the government.

To me that is a greater achievement than having the government aid you.

Obviously it is small, but it is admirable nonetheless.

There are not many people in Africa, from South Africa, Morocco, Nigeria, Kenya anywhere that could do this.
