Chief Technology Officer and Chief Test Pilot, Cody Allee, Completes Hybrid-Electric eSTOL Test Flights
In a groundbreaking advancement for sustainable aviation, our Chief Technology Officer and Chief Test Pilot, Cody Allee, has successfully piloted Electra’s pioneering EL-2 Goldfinch aircraft through it’s first test flights. The test flights, comprising an all-electric flight on November 11th and a hybrid-electric flight on November 19th, were executed flawlessly, demonstrating our company’s commitment to innovation and our pivotal role in shaping the future of air mobility.
Electra’s EL-2 Goldfinch, a hybrid-electric, ultra-short takeoff and landing (eSTOL) aircraft, is a marvel of modern engineering. Equipped with eight electric motors, it promises a new era of air mobility characterized by ultra-short takeoffs, reduced noise, and significantly lower emissions. This technology not only offers a sustainable alternative to conventional aircraft but also paves the way for efficient regional air mobility.
The successful test flights of the EL-2 Goldfinch are a testament to our company’s capabilities in pioneering advanced aerospace technologies and our commitment to sustainable aviation solutions. As we move forward, we continue to focus on pushing the boundaries of what’s possible, underlining our role as a leading force in the future of air travel.
An accomplishment of this magnitude is a big team effort, and ABSI is honored to be a part of the team – congratulations to Electra!
