New Company Will Market Yuneec Electric Aircraft
Two of the electric aircraft produced by Yuneec International, a Chinese company, will now be produced and sold by a new company called GreenWing International, the companies announced on Tuesday. GWI will sell the single-seat eSpyder ultralight and the two-seat e430, and also will provide support for the fleet. Yuneec first exhibited its electric airplanes at AirVenture in 2009, and this year, GWI will bring several eSpyder aircraft for ground display, and will fly the aircraft daily from the runway in the ultralight area.
Yuneec will continue to develop electric motors and power systems, according to Tuesday's news release. Initial production for the eSpyder is expected soon, the company said. Click here for earlier AVweb reports on these aircraft, including videos showing both of the aircraft in flight.
