The next generation in regional aviation is here. In September 2022, Eviation’s all-electric aircraft, the Alice, successfully completed its first test flight, powered by 2 magniX magni650 electric propulsion units. The world’s first all-electric commuter plane (9-seater plus 2 crew), the Alice is a product of “clean sheet” design – built from the ground up around the electric propulsion.
