First All-Electric Flight School Launched

Flight Design Fe2 Chosen By Pilot Flight Academy Of Norway For The Program

Flight Design general aviation and Aero-Nor AS are pleased to announce that Pilot Flight Academy of Sandefjord, Norway has chosen the F2e as the backbone for their new concept of an all-electric based Flight school. The future is here and Flight Design is proud to be in the vanguard of development of the next generation of single engine aircraft for commercial use in flight schools.

The F2e is made in cooperation with Siemens eAircraft and will open new possibilities for the practical use of electric aircraft. The Flight Design F2 is a high-wing strutless design which is largely manufactured using carbon fiber composite technology.

Training is one area that generates the best opportunity for improvement in the environment for nature, nearby residents and airfields as noise emissions are concentrated in that one place, the airfield, where future pilots spend a lot of time flying.

With a wingspan of 31 feet and a modular manufacturing concept, the F2e is based on standard components that are used in the Rotax 912iS powered F2 variant. The propulsion system provided by Siemens eAircraft includes the 55 kW electric direct drive “SP55D”, an inverter and the modular control system “EPUIII” consisting of the Vehicle Control Unit, Cockpit Control Unit, Battery System Master and Power Supply Unit. The propulsion system has already been extensively tested in laboratory and ground tests as well as flight tested for hundreds of flight hours under the supervision of Siemens eAircraft.

The conventionally powered F2 and soon the four-seat F4 will also be delivered with modern, efficient engines for low cost operation. This will give customers the advantage that they can buy airplanes with the same platform, for different purposes. Perfect for users which want to reduce the noise level when doing local training, but still need the possibility to have the same type of airplane for traveling and longer flights.
