World’s largest all-electric plane skies first test flight

With it’s first step towards green engines, world’s largest all-electric plane flew with nine passengers and successfully completed it’s short test flight over Moses Lake, Washington, Thursday.

An all-electric Cessna Grand Caravan 208B successfully completed 30 mins test flight announced by manufacturer magniX, an electric propulsion systems for aircraft developing company, and AeroTEC, a leading independent company focused on aerospace testing, engineering and certification.

The manufacturer hosted a historic public demo of first utility electric flight on Facebook and Twitter.

The successful Cessna eCaravan is a propeller plane and is geared with magniX’s battery-powered electric engine, the Magni250 750 horsepower zero emissions population system.

The flight spectators shared their excellent experience of the Cessna Grand Caravan plane and felt it was noiseless in comparison to the much smaller fuel powered Cessna chase plane.
