BRM and H55 launch all-electric B23 Energic training aircraft

BRM Aero, a manufacturer of two-seater training aircraft, and H55, a provider of electric propulsion systems, have announced the commercialization of the B23 Energic aircraft with the opening of the order book.

“The B23 Energic will be the first clean and efficient fully electric aircraft in the CS-23 general aviation category, with the first deliveries to a selected group of launch customers scheduled early next year, in parallel to full scale commercialization,” said a joint company press release.

The two companies are partnering closely in providing in early 2025, the first set of aircraft to a select group of flight schools and pilot training academies at advantageous commercial conditions and opening the order book for aircraft deliveries in 2025. They will also be finalizing the certification process with the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for the airplane and EPS Type Certificate, by early next year and flying and showcasing the B23 Energic to and at Aero 24 in Friedrichshafen.

“With a maximum take-off weight of 850kg, 60 minutes of endurance, plus reserves, and an hour charge time (depending on environmental conditions and available current), it promises lower ownership costs and the flexibility to upgrade batteries at the end of their useful life on the aircraft,” says the press statement. “With already a high demand for the B23 Energic, BRM Aero is now accepting pre-orders for the aircraft, extending a special offer to the first 20 airplanes for flight schools eager to embrace an all-electric and clean solution for pilot training. By securing a pre-order, customers will not only position themselves at the forefront of electric aviation, but they will also benefit from special launch customer conditions.

“BRM and H55 expect to finalize the certification process quickly. The B23 combustion powered airplane is already certified as a CS-23 aircraft and being flown in many flight schools. Having already secured its production and design certification approval, H55’s propulsion and battery technology has received EASA’s acceptance for its Compliance Check List. This is a significant step towards formal certification of H55’s entire electric propulsion system in the CS 23 general aviation category which includes the motor, motor controller, battery packs and energy management systems and paves the way for aircraft up to 19 seats.
