Welcome to the home of the North American Eagle™. Our mission is to bring the world land speed record back to North 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 ten different occasions. This year of 2013 will see the NAE move into the high speed phase of the project, that will validate our computational fluid dynamic analysis. Our first objective is to break the world female land speed record set by Kitty O'Neil in 1976 at 512 MPH. In 2014, we will be ready to set the new record.
National Instruments provides the team with various components to capture data from different sensors during the course of the test runs.
The North American Eagle Team uses Lenovo ThinkStations and Thinkpads for aerodynamic and engineering analysis work.
