Classic Aero-TV: From ePlanes to eVTOLS--Pipistrel Leads The Electric Revolution

From 2019: Updates On Electric Aircraft And eVTOL Programs

Pipistrel has had a great year in terms of new airplane orders and in the flight training arena. That was the message expressed by Michael Coates, Master Distributor for Pipistrel USA, when he spoke with Aero-New Editor-in-Chief Jim Campbell at AirVenture 2019.

When it comes to the electric airplane segment, Coates says the U.S. is "dragging its feet a little bit" in certification of such aircraft. Such aircraft have been accepted and are flying in other countries, and Coates feels they would be ideal for the U.S. Flight Training market.

Pipistrel's ALPHA Electro aircraft has been designed with the “essence of training” as its primary design goal, according to the company. Performance of the ALPHA Electro 2-seat electric trainer is tailored to the needs of flight schools. Short take-off distance, powerful 1000+ fpm climb, and endurance of one hour plus reserve.

The Alpha Electro is optimized for traffic-pattern operations, where 13% of energy is recuperated on every approach, increasing endurance and at the same time enabling short-field landings.
