Introduction

Welcome to the home of the North American Eagle. Our mission is to bring the world land speed record back to America. With an all volunteer team of engineers, technicians, mechanics and computer geeks, we have a vehicle built to safely break the 763 mph world land speed record set on October 15, 1997 by the British.

To date we have made 44 test runs on 10 different occasions. The year of 2013 has seen the NAE move into the higher speed phase of the project. One objective is to exceed the speed recorded by Kitty O'Neil in 1976 at 512 MPH. When our aerodynamics team gives the go ahead, we will set a date for our attempt at the world record with the requirement to exceed the current record by 1%.
