RAS to open up Bye's eFlyer to western Europe
Bye announced the eFlyer 800 programme in response to growing demands for regional all-electric aircraft with significantly reduced operating costs, plus increased capacity and utility. RAS will be an important advocate.
RAS will be a designated reseller of eFlyer800 aircraft in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Rheinland Air Service (RAS), a European provider of aircraft MRO, has completed purchase deposit agreements for five all-electric eFlyer 800 aircraft from Bye Aerospace. RAS will act as an MRO support provider to eFlyer 800 aircraft in Central Europe through its service and support facilities in Monchengladbach, Germany. Furthermore, RAS will be a designated reseller of eFlyer800 aircraft in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

“We are proud to be investing in the future of sustainable aviation and to be supporting Bye Aerospace in the transformation of flying,” comments RAS CEO Johannes Schaesberg. “The eFlyer 800 with its remarkable economy and flight performance will support the European market while balancing the amount of carbon emissions.”

Bye CEO George E. Bye adds: “We have known Johannes and his company for 20 years and recognise the significant role RAS has, supporting business aviation for this important part of Europe.”

Bye announced the eFlyer 800 programme earlier this year in response to growing demands for regional all-electric aircraft with significantly reduced operating costs, plus increased capacity and utility. The company is in the process of obtaining FAA Part 23 certification for the eFlyer 2 for professional flight training missions and the four-seat eFlyer 4 for air taxi, cargo and advanced training uses.

All the company's current and future families of aircraft feature engineering, research and electric aircraft solutions that are designed to specifically address compelling market needs. Benefits include five-fold lower operating costs, no CO2 emissions and decreased noise. Bye Aerospace estimates the eFlyer will eventually eliminate the release of millions of metric tons of CO2 each year as its deliveries begin and the general aviation fleet is replaced.
