Pipistrel Offers 'Fly for FREE' Concept

Did They Say FREE? (Yes... They Did!)

Pipistrel Aircraft believes it can drastically reduce the cost of flying with the advent of extremely efficient airframes and propulsion systems producing staggering results for cost-conscious flyers, the world over.

A case in point -- The Pipistrel Taurus Electro was the world’s first electric 2-seat airplane to fly, and the first electric aircraft to enter production. Not just efficient, the Taurus Electro features dual retractable main landing gear, a retractable electric motor, impressive gliding performance, inexpensive maintenance and a spacious, well ventilated, cockpit making the aircraft both rugged and comfortable.

With the addition of the new second generation Pipistrel Solar Trailer, flying can now be conducted independent of any electrical installations. The Pipistrel Solar Trailer is designed to charge the Taurus Electro in as little as five hours -- at zero cost and zero emission. The Solar Trailer and the Taurus Electro are provided to demonstrate how a Pipistrel owner/operator can fly for free, AND quietly AND with no environmental emissions.

The Taurus Electro also frees the pilot to operate at countless small airports… and release them form the hassle of having to operate from busy, restrictive, airports. And, again, since you’re free of the need to find an electrical outlet, you can explore and enjoy remote locations free of the need to ‘find a plug.’ The freedom this offers is inspiring – leaving a pilot without dependence on ‘the grid’ – while the Pipistrel Solar Trailer collects and stores clean, natural, solar power.

Nearly 2 kW of flexible solar panels are bonded to the PST roof, while it provides multiple 12 V DC and 110/240 V AC electrical outlets for ready use.

And in case the sun is a little weak, the Pipistrel Solar Trailer is equipped with a 3 kWh integrated storage battery which can also be used to power your campsite or basic home appliances during a blackout or natural disaster – making the PST a mobile emergency powerplant!

 

Pipistrel-USA is a true world leader in innovative aircraft design and manufacturing. With over a dozen airframes in production, the Pipistrel program has won three NASA Centennial Challenges, is the leading importer of Light Spot Aircraft into the USA, and currently offers not one, but two, electrically powered production aircraft to the flying public.
