DALLAS — Eviation has completed the high-speed taxi rotation test of its all-electric Alice aircraft as part of final preparations for the type’s first flight.
The 16,500 lb. Alice, a nine-passenger aircraft built from the ground up to travel 440 nm on an 8,300 lb. battery pack, was initially scheduled to conduct flight testing from the company’s Arlington, Washington, development, and assembly facility in late 2021.
To take advantage of the quieter airspace and longer runways, Eviation decided to move flight testing to Moses Lake earlier this year.
