• Pipistrel Panthera aircraft flies 400km on electricity alone!


  • Green innovations in the aviation industry seem to be catching on, with the world slowly dropping its reliance on fossil fuels alone. We just stumbled across this fantastically eco-friendly medium to fly, the Pipistrel Panthera aircraft. With enough space to seat four, the aircraft was unveiled at the Aero Expo in Freidrichshafen, Germany and can touch speeds of 200 knots, using 41% less fuel than its counterparts. And that’s not all. The Panthera is available in an all-electric version too, further turning this aircraft’s image greener! Sporting a cutting-edge battery system, the electric aircraft can fly a good 400 kilometers on a single charge while the interiors of the aircraft are reminiscent of a four-seater luxury car to say the least!
