Eviation announces Letter of Intent with flyVbird for 25 Alice All-Electric commuter aircraft

Eviation Aircraft, a manufacturer of all-electric aircraft, today announced that fkyVbird, an emerging on-demand regional airline, has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) for 25 Alice aircraft, with options for a further 25.

“flyVbird is committed to enhancing connectivity in rural areas where it will use smaller, more accessible airports” according to the press release. “The airline is driven by unique algorithms to deliver on-demand air travel to routes passengers want to fly. It plans to secure its own Air Operator Certificate to utilize Alice for decentralised and sustainable travel across Europe, connecting unconnected or underserved communities worldwide and delivering carbon-free, cost effective, convenient air travel.

“The nine-seater Alice is a flight-tested all-electric commuter aircraft. Built from a clean-sheet design, the Alice produces zero emissions and costs significantly less to operate per flight hour compared with light jets or regular turboprops. It is powered by two magni650 electric propulsion units developed by magniX, the global industry leader in flight-proven electric propulsion systems.”
