ERAU Tapped To Work On Electric Airplane R&D

Forms Strategic Partnership With Eviation Aircraft

Eviation Aircraft, a manufacturer of all-electric air mobility solutions, today announced that it has selected Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University for research and development with fourth-year undergraduate engineering students. The university program is expected to launch in the spring of 2019 at the Prescott campus.

Promoting innovation and collaboration within the aviation industry, Embry-Riddle students and faculty will work with Eviation's zero-emission all electric aircraft solutions, to focus on performance analysis, validation and testing as well as future electric propulsion and airframe design concepts. The university program will offer students the opportunity to contribute to and participate in preliminary design and sub-scale testing, a highly specialized and unique experience for students training for aviation careers. For nearly a century, Embry-Riddle has been educating some of the brightest and bravest in aviation who drive innovation and keep the aerospace and related industries running safely and productively.

"Embry Riddle is at the forefront of aviation innovation and we are excited to partner with Eviation Aircraft and deliver on our commitment to exposing students to groundbreaking technology," said Embry-Riddle Chancellor Dr. Frank Ayers. "By including Embry-Riddle engineers and students in the R&D pool, Eviation and the Alice Aircraft will take advantage of the exposure and knowledge from our best and brightest engineers."

With the goal of making clean regional air travel accessible for all, Eviation will be debuting the 9-passenger regional commuter at the 53rd Paris Air Show in June 2019. The Alice leverages an IP portfolio that includes thermal management and autonomous landing, as well as distributed electric propulsion, industry-leading battery technology and cutting-edge composite body frames capable of carrying up to nine passengers on 650 miles a single charge.

"With one of the oldest and most well-respected universities at the helm, we're confident that the Alice Aircraft is in good hands and we look forward to partnering with the prestigious university," said Omer Bar-Yohay, CEO of Eviation. "As we innovate within one of the world's most polluting industries, we look forward to partnering with Embry-Riddle to further our mission, vision and electric mobility development."
