  1. Full-Electric Sun Flyer 2 Nearing First Flight
    The Sun Flyer 2 is a fully-electric prop aircraft that is in development and close to its maiden flight. Being developed by BYE Aerospace, the aircraft has been going through its paces on the ground at Engelwood, Colorado. The company is named after its CEO, George Bye and it is looking to soon have its first flight even though a definite date has not been set.
  2. As for how fast this all-electric plane is carded to fly? 120-knots and for about 3.5 hours before it has to return to the ground for a charge. An 80Kw electric motor is onboard to power the aircraft. The company listed that it chose a development partner for the battery pack but has not listed one for the final production of the motor as yet. Electric Power Systems (EPS) was named to do the battery work. EPS will design and build the complete energy storage system, including the battery modules, battery management unit and power distribution unit.
