Eviation unveils its production all-electric Alice aircraft as it prepares for inaugural flight
Eviation Aircraft, a global manufacturer of all-electric aircraft, has unveiled the design for its Alice all-electric aircraft, which is on track for first flight later this year. The production configuration defines Alice’s path to certification, and entry into service is expected in 2024.
The Alice can carry nine passengers and two crew members. It is powered by two magni650 electric propulsion units from magniX, and its fly-by-wire system is made by Honeywell. Its single-volume, high energy-density battery system is made from COTS battery cells and it is not reliant on future advances.
These proven technologies make it easy for pilots to transition seamlessly to flying the Alice, accelerating the aircraft’s path to market.
“Our production version represents the final step in our journey towards the Alice’s first flight,” said Eviation CEO Omer Bar-Yohay. “Electric aviation will continue to open up new possibilities for affordable and sustainable regional travel around the world, and the Alice is poised to turn that possibility into reality soon.”
