Air2E and Hopscotch Air place orders for Electron 5 regional electric aircraft

ELECTRON aerospace announced today it has received orders for its Electron 5 aircraft from Air2E and Hopscotch Air. The company says this strategic alliance takes ELECTRON’s sales pipeline close to EUR 200 million.

“Destined to redefine regional air transport, the Electron 5 stands as the cornerstone for regional air mobility, boasting a 750 km (466 miles) range with today’s batteries, poised for launch in 2028” according to the press release. “This capability exceeds most mission profiles in both the USA and EU, where similar aircraft today cover routes below 500 km (311 miles). With its purely battery electric drive system, the Electron 5 offers operators over 50% reduction in operating costs compared to existing internal combustion engine (ICE) aircraft. Its spacious cabin is designed to accommodate one pilot, four passengers, and their luggage, ensuring comfort alongside operational efficiency.

“The parties have each signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) featuring explicit payment schedules, underscoring the industry’s faith in the Electron 5 and its potential to change regional air mobility for the better.

“This partnership highlights the shared commitment of ELECTRON aerospace, Air2E, and Hopscotch Air to an environmentally friendly and economically sustainable future in aviation, establishing a new benchmark for the industry.”
