Eviation completes conceptual design review of Alice
The conceptual design review of the all-electric Alice aircraft is a significant step toward commercialisation. The aircraft is optimised for certification and streamlined manufacturing.
The production aircraft design of Alice is optimised for certification, streamlined manufacturing and to provide a best-in-class passenger experience.

Eviation Aircraft has completed the conceptual design review of the Alice aircraft, assuring a configuration that is both certifiable and that enables streamlined manufacturing. It maintains Alice's signature look, while optimising performance and further enhancing its cabin experience.

Conducted with the support of TLG Aerospace, the conceptual design review was built on the extensive data gathered from Alice's 2022 flight; wind tunnel testing recently completed at the Kirsten Wind Tunnel in Seattle; feedback from Eviation's customer advisory board; and months of engineering work.

Features introduced in the production aircraft design include:

- A constant cross section that reduces Alice's part count and manufacturing costs, while also enabling future variants of the aircraft.

- Structural segments designed for field re-assembly with standard tooling available to MRO services.

- A larger, centralised Energy Storage System (ESS) compartment above the wing that can integrate a range of ESS solutions now and in the future, in addition to streamlining certification.

- Optimised cabin space allowing for a side mounted carry-on stowage compartment unique in the commuter class.

Eviation has orders totalling more than $ 5 billion.

"Completing the conceptual design review is a major step in Alice's journey, moving us significantly closer to aircraft certification and entry into service," says CEO Andre Stein. "The latest refinements have further enhanced the exceptional design of Alice, which has received orders from operators around the world keen to decarbonise their fleets. This is an exciting year for Eviation, as Alice makes tremendous strides toward making the electric aviation revolution a commercial reality."
