|18/10/2022||Press Release:||Electra achieves sale of 1,000th sustainable eSTOL aircraft|
Testing of the hybrid-electric system took place at Electra's propulsion development facility in Switzerland. The system uses high-power battery packs and a turbogenerator to power eight electric motors and propellers.
Electra is consolidating Airflow's eSTOL business under the Electra brand. It will integrate Airflow's highly experienced team, backlog of letters of intent and strategic partnerships into its own activities.
Electra's eSTOL aircraft can operate from spaces as small as 300 x 100 feet using its patent-pending distributed electric propulsion and blown lift technology. Funding will help develop its flight control system.
