Pipistrel Develops First Charging Station For Electric Airplanes

Company Worked In Conjunction With Three Universities On The Project

Pipistrel, in cooperation with students of three universities, has developed the first charging station for electric airplanes as part of the project "On Creative Path to Practical Knowledge", which ran from February to June under the mentorship of the Faculty of Mecahnical engineering (LECAD laboratory) assistant Vanja Cok PhD.

The goal of the project was the production and installation of a (public) charging station for electric airplanes, because the need for a stationary type of charging has been shown when charging electric aircraft in practice.

The charging station was developed by Pipstrel development engineer Aljaz Pelicon and software engineer Crt Gorup, and students from three Universities:

On 30. August 2017 the electric charging station was officially turned on at the Pipistrel company and used to charge an electric aircraft Alpha Electro. The project was co-financed by the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport and the European Union from the European Social Fund.
