EVIATION RECEIVES ORDER FOR 20 ALICE ALL-ELECTRIC AIRCRAFT FROM AUSTRALIA
Eviation Aircraft, a manufacturer of all-electric aircraft, today announced that Northern Territory Air Services (NTAS), an Australian scheduled airline and charter aircraft operator, has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) for 20 all-electric Alice commuter aircraft. The Alice is leading the way towards a new era of carbon-free, cost-effective and convenient electric aviation. Together, these attributes will empower NTAS to sustainably serve its customers in remote areas of Australia through the enhanced provision of point-to-point air transport. The Eviation Alice is the first flight-proven all-electric commuter aircraft of its scale – capable of carrying nine passengers, or 2,600 lbs of useful load in a cargo configuration. Built from a clean-sheet design around magniX’s industry-leading electric propulsion system, Alice produces zero carbon emissions and costs a fraction to operate per flight hour compared to light jets or high-end turboprops – thereby providing the opportunity to activate more routes. Alice will typically operate flights ranging from 150 miles to 250 miles. NTAS is based in Alice Springs, the gateway to the Northern Territory of Australia’s outback, providing a link to major airlines for passengers arriving and departing from Alice Springs, Uluru and Mt. Isa Airports. It specializes in scheduled and charter air services for business groups, private and tourist travel, and cargo transport. The company has prioritized the adoption of carbon-free and sustainable technologies and is working with a range of stakeholders to support the introduction of all-electric flight.
Based in Washington State, Eviation Aircraft Inc. develops and manufactures electric aircraft to delight operators and passengers with green, cost efficient and convenient regional transportation. Its electric propulsion units, high-energy-density batteries, mission-driven energy management, and innovative airframe are designed from the ground up for electric flight.
