Pipistrel eCTOL Certified

Slovenia’s Pipistrel has received a Type Certification from the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for its Velis Electro, a full-electric derivative of its proven Virus SW 121. The company said the Velis Electro is the world’s first electric-powered airplane to receive a Type Certificate (EASA.A.573 TCDS, dated May 18, 2020). The 1,320-lb (600-kg) two-seat electric conventional takeoff and landing (eCTOL) aircraft is intended primarily for pilot training and, with noise levels of only 60 dBA, is considerably quieter than other aircraft, in addition to much lower operating costs and no tailpipe emissions.
