e-flight-expo ANTARES AT THE E-FLIGHT-EXPO AIRSHOW IN FRIEDRICHSHAFEN
Just like in other branches, in aviation as well, e-mobility slowly but steadily gains in importance. In this context »e« stands for ecological, electrical, and evolutionary in the sense of ecologically acceptable aviation, based on progress.
The day before the AERO 2017 opened its doors, a mini air show - well noticed by the media - was held. Of course we participated in this event, representing the manufacturer of the first electric powered aircraft produced in a series.
Our pilot Jochen Polsz offered an in-flight presentation with our Antares 23E and showed its pre-eminent performance by quickly changing between electric powered flight and high performance gliding. More than 100 journalists and many other spectators were thrilled. Not only by the performance, ...they also enjoyed the sailplane's magnificent flight silhouette.
