Pipistrel-USA reports that over the course of 2020, Pipistrel delivered 111 certified Pipistrel Velis electric aircraft, as well as a number of the Pipistrel ALPHA Electro aircraft. One stunning stat that comes out of all this is the report that for the first time ever, Pipistrel produced more electric aircraft than gasoline powered. 2021 seems to be trending equally well... with more than 70 Pipistrel Velis aircraft on the order books and more expected. Because of the demand, Pipistrel HQ is ramping up production with a second shift to keep up with the orders. You know that NASA has some fears over the future of established programs when they're willing to let go of a Moon Rock... to decorate the new President's office. So...

"Stand Up For What You Believe In, Even If You Are Standing Alone." -- Sophie Scholl

News/Analysis/Commentary by Jim Campbell, ANN CEO Editor-In-Chief I’ve sat on this story for more than a few weeks, thinking it through, and realizing that what we experienced was (potentially) not that unusual and possibly a sign of the times. I hope I'm wrong about that. In an effort to build an even more credible news organization than we have, heretofore; last year Aero-News created a sister organization called AeroPReneuer.
