BRM Aero, H55 Announce B23 Energetic Fully Electric CS-23 GA Bird

BRM Aero and H55 Announce All Electric B23 Energic

BRM Aero and H55 have announced the upcoming commercial availability of the B23 Energic, the first fully electric aircraft in the CS-23 general aviation category. The development opens the order book for 2025 deliveries, with initial batches earmarked for a select group of flight schools under favorable commercial conditions.

The collaboration between BRM Aero, known for their 2-seater training aircraft, and H55, a leader in electric propulsion systems, signifies a significant advancement in aviation technology. The B23 Energic offers a flight endurance of one hour plus reserves, with a charging time of approximately one hour depending on conditions. This efficiency presents a sustainable alternative in aviation, promising lower ownership costs and the adaptability to update battery technology throughout the aircraft's lifecycle.

Certification efforts are progressing rapidly, with EASA expected to finalize the Type Certificate for the airplane and electric propulsion system (EPS) by early next year. As yet there is no word on when or whether the companies will obtain FAA certification of the B23. The B23 Energic is already attracting attention with high demand and special introductory offers for the first 20 aircraft, highlighting its appeal to flight schools looking to integrate electric aircraft into their training programs.

The B23 Energic will be a feature highlight at Aero 24 in Friedrichshafen, Europe's leading general aviation trade show. Demonstrations and passenger flights will be conducted at the event, showcasing the capabilities and performance of the electric trainer. André Borschberg, Executive Chairman of H55, and Martin Bristela, CEO of BRM Aero, have expressed their excitement about this partnership, emphasizing the electric trainer's role in pushing forward the electrification of aviation and promoting environmental sustainability.

This launch not only represents a significant technological leap but also underscores a shared commitment to a greener future in aviation, marking a step towards the larger goal of decarbonizing air transportation with electric solutions that extend beyond training aircraft.
