Watch first electric airplane's maiden flight
posted April 8 2011 20:59.45 by Giorgos Lazaridis




Meet Elektra One, the first all-electric airplane that works. This is the creation of a German company named PC-Aero. Jon Karkow, a well known test-pilot performed the first flight and he was very satisfied with the results.


Three flights were performed. The climbing rate was 400 ft/min. A new 30 min. flight was performed on 23 Mar. Only about 3kW from the total on board of 6kWh energy was used. IN the next two weeks the new variable pitch propeller and the retractable landing gear will be installed. Thanks for the whole team who contributed to this success !!!
