The future electric-powered aircraft named Alice

~Electric Wings~ The trend of vehicle electrification has grown steadily over the last few years. Not only targeting motorcycles, cars, to buses and trucks, the trend has also begun to penetrate the aircraft industry. This could be seen on an electric powered small private aircraft developed by Eviation, an Israeli technology start-up.

Recently the Israeli start-up developed its first commercial electric-powered aircraft named Alice. The electric-powered aircraft was exhibited for the first time at the Paris Air Show 2019. This aircraft is scheduled to fly for the first time this year and be sold to the market in 2022.

As quoted of Bussines Insider, the Alice eco-friendly aircraft is able to carry nine passengers and two crew and also capable of traveling a distance of 1,000 km, with a maximum speed of 240 knots or 445 kph on a single battery charge.

And the battery of the aircraft was a very large lithium-ion battery weighing around 3,600 kg. For the business purposed, the fuselage design is made of lightweight materials with three propellers attached on both wings and tail.

This eco-friendly aircraft fleet is claimed to be able to reduce air ticket prices between 40% -80%. This is because electric aircraft do not cost as much as the operating costs of conventional aircraft. The calculation is that electric planes only need US$ 200 per flight hour for operation.

Seeing this, the CEO and Co Founder of Eviation, Omer Bar-Yohay estimates that the Alice aircraft will be certified in 2022. Where, US-based airline Cape Air has decided to buy this plane at a price of US $ 4 million or approx Rp. 56.4 billion.
And the American company itself plans to use Alice's electric plane to serve regional routes from Boston to Nantucket, Marthy's Vineyard, to New Hampshire and New York. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | EVIATION | ]
