In a world-first, an electric-powered plane was charged

Posted by in categories: engineering, sustainability, transportation

It took two electric trucks to cover a distance of 250 miles.

Remy Oktay, a US engineering student, has successfully completed a test run and is preparing to launch the world’s first electric flight that an electric vehicle will power.

Therefore the EV plane will need to be recharged three times.

Oktay will perform a flyover of the electric plane, a Pipistrel Alpha Electro, at the Lafayette-Lehigh football game, where he also studies, on November 19. To do this, the electric aircraft needs to go from Hartford, Connecticut, to Easton, Pennsylvania. But there is no charging infrastructure at any of the airports in the 150 miles (240 km) as the crow flies the distance between them.
