Pipistrel Velis Electro Gains LSA Airworthiness Exemption from FAA

Battery-Powered SportPlane Enters Market as ‘Cheap’ Little Trainer

Textron's sustainable light plane brand Pipistrel got some good news from the FAA in recent weeks, "opening up flight training in an electric aircraft in the United States". The plane in question is their battery-powered Pipistrel Velis Electro, which got a light-sport aircraft airworthiness exemption allowing it to be used within stateside flight training programs. As such, Pipistrel says the Velis Electro is a much lower cost and sustainable learning platform for low-time pilots learning the ropes. That just adds to the Velis' lore as the first commercially available, type-certified electric aircraft in the world. “This is a great day for flight training organizations and aspiring pilots," said Kriya Shortt, Textron eAviation CEO.

ANN's Daily Aero-Linx (04.10.24)

Aero Linx: Helicopter Safety Advisory Conference (HSAC) The HELICOPTER SAFETY ADVISORY CONFERENCE (HSAC) was formed in January, 1978 after an accident in which 19 people lost their lives when a helicopter came in contact with a platform crane. Realizing there was a lack of communication between oil companies, service organizations, helicopter operations, and the helicopter industry, representatives of these companies agreed to work toward improved safety offshore. The HSAC continues to identify critical issues that affect safety in the Gulf of Mexico. Through interaction of HSAC subcommittees and associated responsible organizations, HSAC has been, and continues to be, proactive in resolving issues of interest to the industry.
