The Alice electric aircraft produced by Israeli company Eviation Aircraft will be equipped with a landing system designed and produced by MA Group.
The two companies have signed an agreement for the development, production and qualification of a fully integrated landing gear system designed exclusively for the innovative aircraft.
The world’s first fully-electric passenger aircraft has successfully taken off. On Sept. 27, Eviation Aircraft completed the first flight and landing of its zero-emission aircraft. Alice is the only aircraft powered by lithium batteries.
Three different versions of the aircraft have been designed. The commuter is the one designed to carry up to nine passengers with two pilots on board, while in the executive one, for a higher market segment, the spaces will be larger and six people can be accommodated. The cargo version will be able to count on 12 cubic meters of cargo.
“We are very honored to be able to count Eviation Aircraft among our customers,” said Giorgio Iannotti, MA Group SVP Business and Product Development. “We offer our know-how by returning to the customer tailor-made projects designed for every need. These challenges make MA Group more competitive and able to share innovative and sustainable visions”
“MA Group provides the solutions of tomorrow, engaging its talents in Research & Development, continuously updating its skills,” said Pietro Persico, MA Group Engineering, Research and Test Director.
