Eviation Aircraft has announced that Aerolease, a leasing company based in Miami, U.S., has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) for up to 50 commuter Alice aircraft.
“The Eviation Alice is a nine-passenger electric aircraft – the only flight-proven all-electric commuter aircraft of its size,” according to a company press release. “Built from a clean-sheet design around magniX’s industry-leading electric propulsion system, Alice produces zero carbon emissions and features lower operating costs per flight hour compared to light jets or high-end turboprops – thereby providing the opportunity to activate more routes, improving the convenience of air travel.”
“In the four years since the last edition of the Paris Air Show, Eviation has achieved the world-first test flight of the Alice, and secured over USD 4 billion in orders,” said Gregory Davis, CEO of Eviation. “Our aircraft has captured the hearts and minds of the marketplace with its beautiful design, low cost of operation and environmental credentials. The leasing community has an important part to play in creating a long-lasting future for our industry, and we are delighted to work with Aerolease, our latest leasing customer.”
