Harbour Air, a Canadian sea plane operation based in Vancouver has relieved the worlds first electric beaver. Harbour Air and MagniX will unveil the world’s first eBeaver seaplane retrofitted with a 750 horsepower all-electric Magni500 propulsion system for the inaugural test flight on Wednesday, December 11.
This emblematic day was chosen in 1903 on this day the Wright Brothers flew on a motorized aircraft for the first time in the world. Based on the permitting issued by Transport Canada, this flight test is weather-dependent, as such timing of the flight is subject to change. A hope that the eBeaver’s inaugural test flight will definitely take place in December.
