  1. Wright Electric Goes Green
    The Wright Plane, Right Now...

    Wright Electric announced today the start of its electric propulsion development program for its flagship 186 seat electric aircraft, named Wright 1. In order to achieve the commercial flight capability of the Wright 1, a 186 seat electric aircraft, Wright is engineering electrical systems at the megawatt scale by building a 1.5 MW electric motor and inverter at 3 kilovolts. These components will form the powerplant of Wright’s revolutionary Wright 1 aircraft and pave the way for a future of zero emissions flight worldwide.

  2. Wright intends to conduct ground tests of its motor in 2021 and flight tests in 2023. The company expects entry into service of its flagship Wright 1 in 2030. The motor and power system development program is the next step towards building its narrowbody class aircraft. Wright will be simultaneously conducting tests on its fuselage to improve aerodynamics. Numerous government agencies in the United States are funding research into electric aviation including NASA and Air Force Research Laboratory. On January 30, Wright demonstrated a preview of its electric motor at its press event in New York, NY. Wright also announced that it is moving its headquarters to Albany, NY to take advantage of the engineering talent there.
