BETA Technologies “completes 1,700 nautical mile ALIA eVTOL journey from Vermont to Florida”

BETA Technologies, in a Linkedin post, has reported that after flying more than 1,700 nautical miles down the east coast from Vermont, its ALIA eVTOL has arrived at Duke Field at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida. The journey included landings at 20 airports in 12 states along the way.

As part of the journey, BETA “completed the first flight of an electric aircraft into Joint Base Andrews (ADW), which included operations inside the heavily restricted Washington, D.C. Flight Restricted Zone (FRZ).

“This flight, which is part of our larger trip down the east coast to deliver ALIA to a deployment with the United States Air Force, marks the second military installation we have landed at following a similar trip to Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio last year. Landing at Andrews – the storied home of Air Force 1 – could not have been possible without clearance from and our joint effort with the 113th Wing, District of Columbia Air National Guard “Capital Guardians”, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), and the Federal Aviation Administration.”
