World's first all-electric plane ‘Alice’ completes maiden flight
Alice, the first entirely electric aircraft in the world, has successfully finished its maiden flight. Compared to light jets or high-end turboprops, Alice emits no emissions and costs far less to run every flying hour. When Alice's 'Eviation' succeeded in electrifying the skies, its creator dubbed it historic.
Grant County International Airport in Washington served as Alice's departure point. A nine-seater aeroplane with battery power called Alice took off from Grant County International Airport and stayed in the air for eight minutes at a height of 3,500 feet. By permitting long-distance air travel for the first time with zero emissions, this journey is truly a game-changer.
