Eviation Reveals the Production All-Electric Alice Aircraft as It Prepares for the First Flight

Eviation Aircraft | July 02, 2021

Eviation Aircraft, a worldwide producer of all-electric aircraft, has revealed its Alice all-electric aircraft design, which is scheduled to take to the air later this year. The production configuration, which has been optimized based on real-world lessons learned and customer feedback, outlines Alice's path to certification and service entry, scheduled for 2024. Alice, a nine-passenger, two-crew member aircraft, produces no carbon emissions, produces considerably less noise, and costs a fraction of what other aircraft do each flight hour. The aircraft is propelled by two magni650 electric propulsion units from magniX, which are the only flight-proven electric propulsion systems at this scale. Honeywell, the industry leader in such systems, developed the advanced fly-by-wire system. The Alice battery system is a single-volume, high-energy-density battery system built using presently available battery cells and did not rely on future advancements. These tried-and-true technologies and design features make it simple and reliable for pilots to convert to flying the Alice while also providing a better passenger flying experience, accelerating the aircraft's path to market. About Eviation Aircraft Eviation Aircraft Inc., based in Washington State, is designing and producing efficient electric aircraft to make flying a competitive and sustainable option for regional transportation of people and goods. Its electric propulsion units, high-energy-density batteries, mission-driven energy management, and innovative airframe are all built for an electric flight from the ground up.
