Skye puts daylight between itself and the eCTOL competition
Bye Aerospace 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.
Momentum for electric aviation continues to grow at a fast pace.

Skye Aviation, an aircraft leasing company headquartered in Denver, Colorado, has completed purchase deposits for 15 Bye Aerospace eFlyer 800 aircraft. This follows recent eFlyer 800 orders from Rheinland Air Service and Jet It/JetClub.

“We are thrilled to be the world's first all-electric aircraft leasing firm and to be able to exclusively offer Bye Aerospace's eFlyer family of eCTOL aircraft,” says Skye's Carol Johnson. “We fully support sustainable, safe aviation leasing solutions for our customers while at the same time slashing eCTOL operating costs, aircraft noise, maintenance and supply requirements efforts. We embrace innovation that offers our customers far less capital-intensive solutions for training, passenger, air cargo, private, business and military operations. In this sense, we all win.”

Bye Aerospace CEO George E. Bye adds: “Skye Aviation is the first all-electric aircraft leasing company in the world. We are honoured by its selection of the eFlyer 800 to be the foundation for its fleet, and we applaud its forward-reaching strategy. Momentum for electric aviation continues to grow at an incredible pace.”

Bye Aerospace 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. All the company's current and future families of aircraft feature engineering, research and electric aircraft solutions are designed to specifically address compelling market needs. Benefits include five-fold lower operating costs, no CO2 emissions and decreased noise. The company estimates 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.

Bye Aerospace 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. The company currently has approximately 800 aircraft in its production backlog over its three models of eFlyer aircraft.
