The Pipistrel Alpha Electro is a 2-seat all-electric fixed-wing aircraft. It has short take-off distance, powerful 1000+ fpm climb capability and an endurance of one hour plus a 30-minute reserve.The Alpha Electro is optimized for traffic-pattern operations, where up to 13% of energy is recuperated on every approach, increasing operations range and at the same time enabling short-field landings.Originally designed for flight training operations, recent developments in technology and infrastructure by FlyOnE have opened up new opportunities for this aircraft to easily service surveying, safety and transport operations in remote areas, agricultural applications, and even personal regional transport with range extension options available.
Every single element of aircraft has been refined to be lighter, more efficient and more reliable than before. The 60+ kW electric motor only weighs 20 kg and is more powerful than the popular Rotax 912 series, typically used on microlights and LSAs. The 21 kWh battery pack is dual-redundant and designed to be either quickly replaceable within minutes or charged in less than one hour, thanks to the next generation of Pipistrel’s Battery Management technology. The airframe uses proven features from hundreds of Pipistrel’s aircraft flying worldwide.
FlyOnE is an official Pipistrel Brand ambassador facilitating the sales, registration and servicing of this (and other) zero emissions aircraft in Western Australia.
