Eviation outsources design of aircraft to TLG Aerospace
Eviation has outsourced design, appointing TLG Aerospace to draw up the production configuration of its Alice aircraft.
Seattle-based aerospace engineering company, TLG Aerospace will work on the design whilst Eviation continues to decide on strategic industry partners to build the Alice with. The submission of a production configuration is a key step on the road to certification, something the partnership with TLG should bear, said Eviation CEO Gregory Davis.
“TLG Aerospace is thrilled to be joining this significant chapter in the development of the Alice aircraft,” said Steve Muenzberg, CEO of TLG Aerospace. “Alice is an innovative, beautifully designed plane and a vital solution to reduce the aviation industry’s carbon emissions. At TLG Aerospace we are committed to supporting the aviation industry’s transition to sustainability, and working with Eviation’s Alice is a tremendous opportunity to contribute to this critical initiative.”
Eviation’s nine-passenger Alice is the only flight-proven all-electric commuter aircraft of its size, according to its OEM. Built from a clean-sheet design using a magniX electric propulsion system, Alice produces zero carbon emissions.
Davis, Eviation CEO, said: “Establishing the production configuration of the Alice aircraft is an important milestone in the programme. This allows us to complete the design of the production version of the aircraft, a significant step on Alice’s path to certification. We are excited to work with the expert engineering team at TLG Aerospace to take Alice into this next stage of bringing zero carbon, cost-effective and convenient air travel to the market.”
