Air2E puts deposit down on fully electric eFlyer 800
Charter broker Air2E has confirmed an order for the eFlyer 800, as it intends to build a fleet of the fully electric aircraft for its own air taxi service. Bye Aerospace claims the aircraft achieves twin turboprop performance.
Bye Aerospace announced the eFlyer 800 programme earlier in 2021 in response to demand for regional all electric aircraft with significantly reduced operating costs, plus increased capacity and utility.

Air2E has executed a purchase deposit agreement for the eFlyer 800, by German developer Bye Aerospace, for its air taxi and regional airline operations in Europe.

“Air2E's mission is to accelerate the transition to sustainable aviation and now with the eFlyer 800 we are another step closer to this aim,” says Norbert Werle, Air2E's founder and CEO. “We intend to build an eFlyer 800 fleet for our air taxi service, which is already today the most economical individual flight solution available. In contrast to large airline operations, small four to 10 seat airplanes are the ideal size for a regional network of on demand flights, consequently providing the fastest road to sustainable and cost effective individual air-travel with all electric airplanes like the eFlyer 800.”

“The eFlyer 800 is the first all electric propulsion technology that achieves twin turboprop performance and safety with no CO2 and extremely low ops cost compared to legacy turboprop aircraft,” comments George E. Bye, CEO of Bye Aerospace. “These legacy jet and turboprop aircraft have been solid performers in the air charter market, but at high operating cost contributing to relatively expensive prices and for a small group of business customers. Customers like the ones served by Air2E are demanding greater flexibility and cleaner, more efficient means of transportation.”

Bye Aerospace announced the eFlyer 800 programme earlier in 2021 in response to demand for regional all electric aircraft with significantly reduced operating costs, plus increased capacity and utility. It is also in the process of obtaining FAA Part-23 certification for the eFlyer 2 for the professional flight training mission and the four seat eFlyer 4 for air taxi, cargo and advanced training uses.
