NAE™ Project: Announcement

Featured Sponsors

September 17, 2010

Ladies and Gentlemen:

(Download RTF version file here, or Word file here.)

The North American EagleTM project is proud to announce that the Danish Financier, Per Wimmer, is joining the team. Per Wimmer is joining the North American Eagle crew as a co-driver with Ed Shadle and is proud to be a part of this amazing team. Together they aim to write history with a new world land speed record.

Per Wimmer is a global financier, an entrepreneur, an adventurer, a pioneer and a philanthropist. He is based in London where he runs his own investment bank, Wimmer Financial, which specializes in global capital raising, corporate finance and listed equity trading for institutional investors.

His work as well as his adventures are based on his seven fundamental values:

1.Think out of the box - Be open for new inspiration.

2. Follow your heart – Follow your passion, and find out what counts for you.
3. Focus and execution - Do not just talk about it. Get Started. When the decision is taken, then carry it out.

4. Control time - Time is the most restricted resource we have. Therefore exploit it the best possible way.

5. Teamwork - The sum of a joint work is greater than the sum of the achievements made separately.

6. Risk vs. reward – Consider the reward when things succeed, compared to the risk, if it goes wrong.

7. Inspire others - Whatever you do, inspire others so they too can live out their dreams.

These 7 values are all bases for his success, his great adventure and have given him the freedom to live out his dreams.

In his spare time, he is constantly looking for new adventures that can challenge him and his ambitions. He is expected to be the first Danish citizens ever to enter space, and in October 2008 he wrote world history, together with Ralph Mitchell, by successfully completing the first tandem sky dive over the highest point on Earth, Mount Everest.

Per Wimmer lives by the philosophy that you should live your dream – and he hopes to inspire others to do the same.....

On the Newsstands

If you own a Falcon Business Jet, then you have seen the North American Eagle in the latest issue of Falconer Magazine, Issue 36 / 2010. If you're not lucky enough to own a multi-million dollar business jet, the you can read The Quest To Be The Fastest Car On Earth written by Grant Kielczewski, Managing Editor on line. It features extraordinary photos of our July 2009 test session at The Black Rock Desert, and tells the story of tenacity and resourcefulness as our team challenges the 763 mph world land speed record.
