A student from Covenant University in Otta, Ogun State, has achieved an extraordinary feat by successfully constructing a mini-airplane as part of his final year project.
Known as Captain Kuldek, this ambitious student embarked on his impressive journey during his third year of studies, dedicating a significant amount of effort to bring his project to fruition.
Captain Kuldek’s path was undoubtedly laden with challenges, yet his unwavering determination allowed him to overcome each obstacle that crossed his way.
Sharing his emotions in a tweet, he chronicled the highs and lows of his endeavour, emphasizing his resilience against setbacks.
The accompanying video clips provided a captivating visual narrative of his endeavour. One video depicted the airplane’s initial test flight, revealing the initial challenges as the aircraft struggled to achieve stable flight.
Another clip captured the aircraft’s unfortunate collision with an object during a test flight, underscoring the complexities involved in such a venture.
However, Captain Kuldek’s story takes an inspiring turn. Despite encountering a crash just days before his project defense, his indomitable spirit prevailed.
He demonstrated remarkable persistence and determination by not only reconstructing the airplane but also restoring it to its former glory.
In his words:
“I accomplished building an entire AIRCRAFT for my final-year project. If I were to express the depths of my emotions about this project, I’d never finish typing. Nevertheless, I am filled with excitement that I was able to breathe life into the dream of an ambitious 300-level student. I’m immensely grateful to every individual who offered their help and support in various ways. A special acknowledgment goes to Nelson Elijah, my emergency engineer and spare parts supplier. And yes, the plane did encounter a crash a few days before the defense, but I managed to mend it and restore its beauty.”
Reactions from online users were as follows:
@PraiseOreo commended his perseverance, stating, “Kudos to you. Your determination and persistence paid off.”
@_Amumin shared their own experience, commenting, “If you knew how many times I attempted to make a plane, radio, and rotor when I was in SS1. Congratulations, champion. Innovation isn’t an easy feat.”
