Australian Air Taxi Operator Chooses Electra Aero

Wilbur Air Goes Shopping for Sustainable Aviation Down Under

Electric air taxi operator Skyportz announced a new subsidiary to provide all-electric operations under the Wilbur Air name, adding another future carrier to the Australian travel landscape.

Wilbur Air opted to go with Electra.Aero's eSTOL for their flagship aircraft, inking a deal for 100 units with the American manufacturer. Wilbur Air does say that they won't just rest with the single-model fleet though, future buys will add everything from heavy lift and drone delivery to long-range sustainable passenger transit. 

"Electra is thrilled to partner with Wilbur Air in addressing Australia's distinct aviation needs. Our sustainable eSTOL aircraft is perfectly suited for Australia's diverse geography, with its ability to access short airstrips in both urban and remote areas, while offering exceptional operational efficiency. Electra looks forward to supporting Wilbur Air in enhancing regional connectivity, accessibility, and environmental stewardship throughout Australia," said Marc Ausman, Electra's chief product officer.

"Wilbur Air will be establishing operational partnerships across Australia with existing small charter and helicopter companies interested in moving into advanced air mobility and flying under the Wilbur Air brand with priority access to our Skyportz vertiports," said Newton-Brown CEO and founder of Skyportz and Wilbur Air.

"We see great potential for the Electra.Aero aircraft in Australia given its unique long range capacity. We will have some further announcements soon regarding additional aircrafts that will suit a range of uses that we intend to operate."
