已采用西雅图地区公司为推荐舰队的电动汽车提供2030年,为300架飞机建造。

这笔交易有可能成为最大的尚未宣布magn, which is emerging as a player in the electric aviation niche. The company, based in Redmond, recently announced deals withSydney Seaplanes in Australia用电池供电的电动机改造九乘客Cessna 208大篷车,并加入了努力改造一个40-passenger哈维兰Dash 8 q - 300具有由氢燃料电池供电的两个电动机。

In addition, the company continues work to certify its first battery-powered aircraft —which first flew 12 months ago- 这可以开始携带支付乘客。它持续开发工作与姊妹公司求职的建议电池供电的爱丽丝nine-seat commuter plane.

All in all, “the last six months have just been crazy good, despite everything that’s going on with Covid,” said MagniX CEO Roei Ganzarski . “We’re really excited with the fact that what’s going on in the marketplace is solidifying our product and our strategy.”

The Alice, which is expected to have its first flight next year, would be the world’s first battery-powered aircraft designed to be all-electric from the start. All other battery-powered planes to fly to date have been conversions of conventional carbon-burning aircraft.

但是,虽然这将是Magnix的一个巨大里程碑,但最近的交易是12月17日在英国宣布的,可能是最大的。

Magnix是一个风险分享合作伙伴,英国初创公司,旨在一旦2026年将一台18乘客推进器驱动的三层带到市场。现有电池技术不足以为飞机为尺寸而强劲,Ganzarski表示。因此,作为临时步骤,法拉料提出了一种生物燃料动力发电机,为一对750马力的Magnix电机提供电力。

到2030年,该公司表示,它计划建立300个飞机,配置为空中消防,货物/乘客转换,全职货运代理商以及政府机构,如边境和渔业巡逻或毒品拦截等特派团。

法拉料尚未宣布对飞机的任何客户承诺。它表示计划将所有权维护并租给运营商。

无论是由电池,生物燃料发电机还是氢气动力,Magnix的电动机都将在华盛顿西部的新植物组装。Ganzarski说他还没有准备好宣布新工厂的地方,但澳大利亚的发布报告suggests it will be in Everett.

Teal Group Analyst Richard Abulafia表示,电子飞机是大型航空航天业中的一个小而有趣的利基,他是12月早些时候华盛顿航空航天工业州的虚拟小组的一部分。

“I am intrigued by the Pacific Northwest angle,” he said. “It does seem with that combination of entrepreneurialism and engineering and background in aviation … that there will be opportunities for the Pacific Northwest to lead the way.”

华盛顿本月的交通部将六个机场指定为电机的“Beta测试”网站。该指定意味着当地机场管理员将与DOT的航空部门合作,以计划基础设施电动飞机的类型。

The airports are King County International (also known as Boeing Field), Chehalis-Centralia, Felts Field in Spokane, Grant County International in Moses Lake, Olympia Regional and Yakima Air Terminal.
