Revolutionary 4-seat all composite design, featuring retractable undercarriage, 200 kts cruising speed, 1000 NM range, comfortable cabin and a choice of three powerplants

Pipistrel unveils the new 4-seat aircraft Panthera

Following last year's project launch, Pipistrel is proud to present the Panthera at AERO 2012, hall A5. Panthera is an all-new 4-seat composite cruiser, developed entirely in house. The streamlined design with a very comfortable cockpit takes 4 people 1000 NM and cruises at 200 kts while burning only 10 USgal per hour of fuel. The prototype is powered by a proven and reliable Lycoming IO-390 fuel injected engine, but Hybrid- and Electro powerplants are coming soon.

Pipistrel CEO Ivo Boscarol calls the design wildly innovative: »Panthera will shake the World of General Aviation, setting the benchmark for efficiency, cabin comfort and safety for others to follow. Hybrid and Electric aircraft are the future of aviation with Panthera being the best airframe to demonstrate the potential of this technology.«

Panthera's standard equipment includes a specially-developed low-altitude high-speed Ballistic Parachute Rescue System, 26 G safety cockpit, tuned exhaust system, titanium trailing-link retractable landing gear and select Garmin avionics. Global Part-23 certification is expected in 2015.

Pipistrel is a three time winner of the NASA Centennial Challenges and has claimed the highest prize ever awarded in aviation, the Green Flight Challenge 2011. Its 4-seat electric Taurus G4 airframe was recently nominated for the prestigious Collier Trophy, awarded to greatest achievements in astronautics and aeronautics.
