MAGROUP and Eviation Aircraft have signed an agreement for the development, production and qualification of a fully integrated landing gear system designed exclusively for the innovative aircraft.
The world’s first fully-electric passenger aircraft has successfully taken off: yesterday the Israeli company Eviation Aircraft, completed the first flight and landing of its zero-emission aircraft. Alice is the only aircraft powered by lithium batteries and at the moment three different versions have been designed: the commuter is the one designed to carry up to nine passengers with two pilots on board, while in the executive one, for a higher market segment, the spaces will be larger and six people can be accommodated. Finally, the cargo will be able to count on 12 cubic meters of cargo cargo.
MAGROUP is proud to be a partner of this project, in line with its corporate objectives related to sustainability and the reduction of CO2 emissions in the aeronautical sector. “We are very honored to be able to count Eviation Aircraft among our customers. We offer our know-how by returning to the customer tailor-made projects designed for every need. These challenges make MAGROUP more competitive and able to share innovative and sustainable visions” said Giorgio Iannotti, MA Group SVP Business and Product Development.
