Yuneec offers the e430, a two-seat electro-plane that’s been flying for the past six months, and will be ready to buy next year. This electrically powered plane could change the world, costing just two dollars per hour to power its flight. Cost of this type of plane will be $89,000.
Electric flight, once seen as futuristic, has arrived and with E430’s flight times of between 1.5 and 3 hours (depending on configuration) electric flight now becomes a realistic power source for sport aviation. Charging times of 3 hours for as little as $5 make electric a really low cost way to fly and with only 2 main moving parts in the motor (the bearings) the reliability and maintenance are like nothing seen before.
