The company Evektor in cooperation with its partners presented a fully electric airplane suitable for sports flying. Original solution of a propulsion system was developed to meet all necessary certifications.
Propulsion system of the airplane is an electric, almost maintenance-free, high-performance equivalent of the engine Rotax 912, which is the most common combustion engine for this airplane. The electric unit developed by Evektor and built on components by MGM COMPRO may soon become a standard electric propulsion system for LSA airplanes.
The United Kingdom Royal Aeronautical Society in cooperation with Light Aircraft Association announced that Light Aircraft Design Competition is back for a fourth time.
