The Chinook ETS scientific club’s purpose is to design a wind propelled vehicle with the ability to drive into a headwind. Based at École de technologie supérieure University, in Montreal, Canada, the Chinook team competes each year at the international event Racing Aeolus in Holland. Teams from all over the world meet at Racing Aeolus to match designs for wind turbine vehicles.
In 2012, Chinook ETS were the champions at Racing Aeolus. in 2013, they set the record with a vehicle speed of 82.6% of the wind speed while heading into the wind. This last August was even better.
