Did You Know--Cool Facts About Pipistrel Aircraft!

  • Pipistrel USA is a small but dedicated team of industry professionals with experience and a passion for LSA (light sport aircraft) and glider flying.
  • Pipistrel is considered the leading light aircraft manufacturer in Europe for almost 30 years, winner of the world air games, and winner of the NASA CAFE challenge 3 times in a row (including winner of $1.375 Million NASA Prize, the largest prize ever awarded in aviation for efficiency in flight). 

  • Pipistrel is proud to announce the release of our new aircraft, the Pipistrel ALPHA TRAINER. The name “Pipistrel ALPHA Trainer” describes the exact purpose of this exciting new aircraft designed for Light Sport Aircraft Flying Schools in markets and countries which have the FAA-LSA (or adaptation of ASTM rules) categories.

  • The Pipistrel ALPHA TRAINER is capable of doing circuits all day long in all conditions including excessive heat well above 100°F.

  • Performance of the ALPHA Electro 2-seat electric trainer is tailored to the needs of flight schools. Short take-off distance, powerful 1000+ fpm climb, and endurance of one hour plus reserve.

  • The new Pipistrel ALPHA Electro, with its frugal operating costs, can be operated in most areas for as little as $3/hour for the electricity to operate the aircraft.

  • Powered by the modern, yet proven and reliable Lycoming IO-540 engine, Panthera is the statement of efficiency – cruising at 200 kts with a fuel consumption of only 10 US gallons per hour instead of the »usual« 17 gallons of the competition.

  • Coming soon is the Panthera Electro. With its pure-electric 145 kW powertrain it’s a treat for the high-tech enthusiasts and those to whom the environment matters. The goal is to demonstrate the ability of covering 400 km (215 NM), quietly, efficiently, with absolutely zero emissions and for a fraction of cost of a gas-powered, polluting aircraft.

  • The Virus is a very capable touring aircraft. With long range tanks it has 7 hours endurance at 120 knots and with a higher wing loading it cuts through heavy turbulence with ease.

  • The Sinus Flex model is identical to the standard Sinus, with the added bonus of interchangeable wing-tips. The outer 5-foot portions of each wing can be easily removed so the aircraft can fit into a standard hanger or you can replace the long wingtips with the short wingtips of a Virus model !  Now that’s smart, 2 aircraft in one.
