Equator Aircraft is an agent for unique aircraft design, we are very interested in getting contact with young, highly spirited engineering- and design students.
In 2008 the two Industrial Design students and pilots Tomas Broedreskift and Oeyvind Berven started work on the new EQP2 Excursion, Equators first attempt on the light aircraft market. In this start – up phase the Equator team are working on making project assignments, design briefs, and specified diplomas that can be worked on by students. Therefore we encourage every student with relevant studies and an aerospace dream to join our efforts and in time become part of the new Equator Team that will ultimately bring amphibian flying to a new level. Objectively spoken, your fantasy truly is the only limit! We have several areas that need to be researched and tested before we build our EQP2 Prototype Testbed. We will of course provide the guidance and motivation you need to do an excellent project!
If you are interested in the aerospace industry, this is a unique possibility, where you might end up seeing many of your ideas come alive on our EQP2 Excursion Design Package, and perhaps on the whole future P-Series. You have the opportunity of coming in contact with a pioneer within the development of composite aircraft Guenter Poeschel, and get ideas realized through Equator Aircraft and our cooperatives.
Contact our Student coordinator Tomas Broedreskift for further information on how we might proceed to cooperate on specified product assignments. And if you´ve never flown in a small plane in your life, we might even be able to fix that to!
