Electric eFlyer Aircraft from Bye Aerospace
WORLD LEADER AND INNOVATOR OF ELECTRIC AIRCRAFT
Bye Aerospace is creating innovative electric designs to build and market advanced aerospace products.
According to our Founder and CEO, George Bye, “What Bye Aerospace brings to aviation is exemplary engineering, research, and electric aircraft solutions to answer compelling market needs.”
The need: A compelling need for new professional pilots is growing according to Boeing and others. In the near-term the coronavirus will impact the new pilot requirement. In the long-term, demand for new pilots is expected to return. An estimated 763,000 (Boeing forecast 2020) new pilots are needed over the next 20 years – a more than 4.5-fold increase over the 165,000 pilots flying today. According to industry sources, 80% of new student pilots drop out of training. The #1 objection is cost.
The answer: The clean, all-electric eFlyer trainer is ideal as it dramatically reduces the flight operations cost. This potentially improves the flight school economics while reducing student pilot costs. The new, high-tech eFlyer is intended to replace the nearly obsolete training fleet of 11,000 conventional aircraft that averages almost 50 years-old.
Bye Aerospace is a world leader and innovator of electric aircraft. The company, which was founded in 2007 and is headquartered near Denver at Centennial Airport, is developing and flight testing prototypes of all-electric general aviation training, personal and business aircraft, focusing on advances in energy and design efficiencies. We are growing and revolutionizing the general aviation and aerospace industries.
