Airbus pilot trainer

It made its maiden flight just over a year ago and is the least known Airbus product.  The E-Fan 2.0 all-electric revolutionary initial pilot training aircraft is to go into production.

Voltair SAS, created in 2014 and owned 100% by Airbus Group, will manage the E-Fan development, production and delivery in the Pau area.  Voltair will also be in charge of selling and providing services including maintenance for the E-Fan aircraft.

The demonstrator aircraft was first presented at the Paris Air Show in 2013.  Since its maiden ascent on 11 March 2014, the E-Fan has performed more than 78 test flights totalling over 38 flight hours to date.  Series production is expected by the end of 2017.
