Who is Loïc Pochet ?
Loïc Pochet, pilot instructors, browser, with the experience, all those thousands of flight hours on Calamalo 1 and the other allowed me to project the areas of development and improvement of a new ULM for a new technology.
A new generation of amphibious with contemporary performance: namely optimization ratio Weight / Power, speed, fuel consumption, CO2 emission, aerodynamics simultaneously at major landing capabilities.
This vision is articulated around two axes:
