The order book for Eviation Aircraft's nine seater all-electric Alice aircraft has passed a total value of US$ 2 billion.

The Eviation Alice conducted its first flight on 27 September, 2022 at Grant County International airport in Washington, US. This historic achievement marked the start of a new phase in the development of the Alice. Eviation is now focused on its certification programme on the way to completing entry into service. Customers so far include US regional airlines Cape Air and Global Crossing, and Germany-based airline operator Evia Aero.

"Our order book passing the US$ 2 billion mark is a significant commercial milestone," says president and CEO Gregory Davis. "This success demonstrates that the Alice is leading the industry and meeting the market demand for zero-carbon flight. We are already seeing a growing clamour from passengers for sustainable aviation, matched by an increasingly robust attitude from regulators. By ordering the Alice, our forward-thinking customers are positioning themselves wisely for the future."

The Alice, a clean-sheet design built around all-electric propulsion, produces no carbon emissions and costs significantly less to operate per flight hour compared to light jets or high-end turboprops. The aircraft is also quieter than combustion engine aircraft, allowing more flights into cities and communities where noise is a factor. Together, these developments promise to usher in a new era of low-cost point-to-point travel, reshaping the commuter and regional air market. Alice is powered by two magni650 electric propulsion units developed by magniX.

"With almost 300 aircraft now on order, the Alice is receiving strong customer endorsement. The aircraft is capturing the hearts and minds of the marketplace with its beautiful design, low operating costs and carbon zero footprint," adds vice president, commercial sales Eddie Jaisaree. "The Alice will not just protect the planet but also create a more enjoyable flight experience for passengers. Considering the environmental and fuel cost challenges facing conventional airlines, incorporating the Alice into our customers' fleets will give them a significant competitive advantage."
