ARLINGTON, Wash., Aug. 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Eviation Aircraft, a manufacturer of all-electric aircraft, today announced that it has appointed TLG Aerospace, a Seattle-based aerospace engineering company, for the design of the production configuration of the Alice commuter plane. TLG Aerospace is a leading engineering firm in the aviation industry with expertise from product development to certification.
Leading The Aviation of Tomorrow
Recently named one of TIME Magazine’s “100 Most Influential Companies 2023”, Eviation pioneered the nine-passenger Alice – the only flight-proven all-electric commuter aircraft of its size. Built from a clean-sheet design integrating magniX’s industry-leading electric propulsion system, Alice produces zero carbon emissions and features lower operating costs per flight hour than light jets or high-end turboprops – thereby providing the opportunity to activate more routes, improving the convenience of air travel.
“Establishing the production configuration of the Alice aircraft is an important milestone in the program,” said Gregory Davis, CEO of Eviation. “This allows us to complete the design of the production version of the aircraft, a significant step on Alice’s path to certification. We are excited to work with the expert engineering team at TLG Aerospace to take Alice into this next stage of bringing zero carbon, cost-effective and convenient air travel to the market.”
“TLG Aerospace is thrilled to be joining this significant chapter in the development of the Alice aircraft,” said Steve Muenzberg, CEO of TLG Aerospace. “Alice is an innovative, beautifully designed plane and a vital solution to reduce the aviation industry’s carbon emissions. At TLG Aerospace we are committed to supporting the aviation industry’s transition to sustainability, and working with Eviation’s Alice is a tremendous opportunity to contribute to this critical initiative.”
