Elektra Solar GmbH announced that its two-place, all-electric, training and towing aircraft, the Elektra-Trainer, had received ultralight certification from the German Ultralight Flight Association (DULV)—a representative agency of Germany’s Federal Ministry for Digital Affairs and Transport (BMDV).

Based on 2011’s Elektra One single-seat, ultralight, solar-assisted-electric-propulsion aircraft and designed with an eye toward flight-schools and flying clubs, the Elektra Trainer’s hourly operating cost of about sixty-euros is fully half that of a legacy ultralight aircraft. Enstrom Helicopter Corporation announced on 30 January that the first new 480B model helicopter had flown. The turbine-powered 480B is the 1,317th helicopter to roll out of the Enstrom factory, and the 255th 480 series helicopter built. United announced the graduation of its first group of zero-to-hero ab initio pilots from their United Aviate Academy. The class is the first to come from the Goodyear, Arizona location after United took over the training accommodations that served as Lufthansa's old stomping grounds. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unlimited!!!
