Nadège and her MCR-4S
Although she has a degree in electrical engineering and automation, when she starts the assembly in a hangar in Darois (France), Nadège has no experience. But learning on the job does not frighten her and, throughout her course, many kind people will be brought to help and advise her…
The first person to help her is her companion. And then, she meets a lot of people on the Darois airfield: they lend her part of a hangar, here a mechanic comes to give her advice, there a technician gives her tips, etc. It takes time, especially since there are several hours of driving between Maastricht, where she lives, and Darois.
Nadège works between 4 and 6 weeks a year on her MCR-4S and, in 2018, she is moving her kit to Pontarlier where Sébastien Maginot and Éric Fumey, the head of SE AVIATION AIRCRAFT, are at her service. For example, she will do the wiring of her plane under the supervision of Sébastien, and Éric will use her MCR-4S as a support for the prototyping of the Rotax 915iS installation, from the cowlings to the engine mounts and the radiators!
In 2023, after having been carried out slowly but surely, the work is coming to an end. Indeed, the assembly of the MCR-4S registered F-PCNS is almost finished: fuselage, all the carbon part, upholstery, avionics, etc. Nadège has good hopes to realize its maiden flight at the beginning of 2024, that is to say 15 years after having bought the kit!
At SE AVIATION AIRCRAFT, we admire the perseverance of this woman, motivated by an unrelenting passion… and we can’t wait to see her machine flying. We will tell you more about it. It will be the occasion to honor Nadège once again, to conclude the great adventure of the assembly of her MCR-4S, and to start a new one… in the sky!

What’s new with SE AVIATION AIRCRAFT?
New wings for F-PJCL
The wings of the MCR VLA n°65 registered F-PJCL had an aluminum coating that showed traces of corrosion. At the request of its owner, the SE AVIATION AIRCRAFT teams took matters into their own hands!
So, with its new, more modern and stronger wing that will never present any corrosion, the VLA n°65 is ready to (a new) take-off!
