Jakarta (ANTARA) - Jujun Junaedi, an amateur helicopter maker from a village in Sukabumi, West Java, hopes to complete his own-cost production of an aircraft following discussions with researchers at the National Institute of Aeronautics and Space (LAPAN). "After a discussion with some experts here, I have encouraged myself to proceed with this project by conducting some procedures and perhaps undertake tests later," Junaedi said during the visit at his residence Tuesday.

LAPAN conducted this visit to follow up on the instructions from the Minister of Research and Technology, Bambang Brodjonegoro, regarding the viral YouTube video of Junaedi making some efforts to manufacture a helicopter using two 700 cc cylinder generators set machine and daily materials.

The helicopter is not ready for tests since there are various stages still to be completed, a researcher of the Centre of Aviation Technology, Teuku Mohd Ichwanul Hakim, said during the visit.

However, thanks to this breakthrough, Junaedi has been invited to an event held by the global internet technology company, Google for Id in Jakarta.
