Electric Cessna Grand Caravan makes historic maiden flight
JUNE 4, 2020
Magnix, a maker of electric powertrains for aircraft, collaborated with engineering and flight test specialist AeroTEC to test an electric Cessna 208B Grand Caravan that they claim is the largest all-electric aircraft yet flown. The 30-minute maiden flight, which took place at an airfield near Moses Lake, Washington, was “flawless,” according to the test pilot. The converted Cessna is powered by Magnix’s Magni500 propulsion system, which generates 750 hp.
