An important announcement from Katja Nielsen, co-owner of European Aircraft Sales.
Piper Aircraft and CAE have joined forces to develop a new player on the field of electric aviation: an electric Piper PA-28-181 Archer!
The partnership is formed to develop a supplemental type certificate (STC) for an electric powerplant conversion of the single-engine Piper Archer. The Swiss company H55, will supply the battery system for the STC, and Safran Electrical & Power will supply the engine. The aircraft will use the EngineUs 100 electric motor that provides a maximum of 150 kW power at takeoff and incorporates an integrated motor controller.
