This is a very special Racer 56, for our very own Alex Court. Built by him and the sewing team in their spare time, this striking Racer will be gracing the skies of the UK in early 2017.

Santa Clause has been to Lindstrand early this year, and has brought us a new CNC Miller and CNC Lathe by Haas. These are very exciting pieces of equipment and a great addition to our engineering department. It will allow for a whole host of items to be machined in house, and great for prototyping.

We think these machines are going to be kept very busy!
