Yuneec International - E430 Electric Aircraft, China
Nominated for the Brit Insurance Transport Award 2010
Designed and manufactured by Yuneec International
While electric cars are becoming a common sight on the streets of our cities, electric aircraft are not yet publicly available. With the development of the E430, Yuneec hope to change that. The E430 is a twin seat, single engine, light sport aircraft designed to be simple to use, easy to fly and produce zero emissions.
For a cost as low as £5, a three hour charge can power the E430 for up to three hours. As with other types of electric propulsion, the E430’s engine has only two moving parts making maintenance simple and cost effective whilst improving reliability. The engine produces almost no noise and minimal vibration helping to improve the enjoyment of piloting the aircraft and making it more accessible to the novice.
