With aviation accounting for around 12% of all global transport emissions, the order is a step towards a sustainable future for OSM Aviation and Norway’s goal to shift all short-haul routes to electric flight by 2040.

This is the largest order for commercial electric planes to date.

Eflyer2 is built by Colorado based Bye Aerospace

Bye Aerospace will probably be the first to mass produce a certified FAR 23 and EASA 23 all-electric airplane


Very interesting! Maybe I should go fly one! Probably based in Denver
