  1. eFlyer 800 Introduced By Bye Aerospace
    Bye Aerospace is expanding further with the brand of electric aircraft. Their latest offering is called the eFlyer 800. This is an all-electric 8 passenger turbo prop class aircraft which will provide alot of competition for many other manufacturers in the future. "The eFlyer 800 is the first all-electric propulsion technology airplane that achieves twin-turboprop performance and safety with no CO2 and extremely low operating costs," said George E. Bye, Bye Aerospace CEO. "This type of remarkable economy and performance is made possible by the electric propulsion system and advanced battery cell technology that results in significantly higher energy densities."
  2. Bye said eFlyer 800 customer deposit agreements are complete, and several are being developed with U.S. and European air-taxi, air-cargo and air charter services. "Details about those agreements will be announced soon, and as they are finalized," he said. Looking at some of the performance estimates for the eFlyer 800 now; initial indications call for a cruise speed of up to 320-knots. You will be able to climb to 35,000 feet ceiling and fly for 500 nautical mile range with 45-minute IFR reserves at normal cruise speed of 280-knots. Taking safety into consideration some of these features include two wing-mounted electric motors, each with dual redundant motor windings, quad-redundant battery packs and a full airplane parachute. Additional potential features include emergency auto-landing system, intelligent algorithm ensuring envelope protection, terrain avoidance and routing for emergency auto-land, and also an option for supplemental power solar cells and in-wheel electric taxi. The airplaneā€™s 8-seat configuration consists of up to seven passengers and one or two pilots. The eFlyer 800 will have only one-fifth the operating costs of traditional twin turboprops and is geared for the air-taxi, air-cargo, regional and charter aircraft markets.
