THE F2e

THE FUTURE OF FLIGHT TRAINING

Slider
 
The F2e is destined to be a leader in the next major change in flight training and personal recreation. The F2e was designed to meet EASA CS-23 and FAA Part 23/F44 certification for electric aircraft and the ASTM F3180 low-speed flight characteristics standard for departure characteristics, spin resistance, and stall warning. . Basic model price: €245.000 INCLUDING 75 KWH BATTERIES
 
In order for all of aviation to continue to grow, a major change in the impact on our environment must be realized. A smaller carbon footprint, lower noise, and more neighbor-friendly aircraft for Flight Schools is a great first step. At Flight Design general aviation, we are proud to be part of the upcoming electric revolution! Partnering with Rolls Royce/Siemens and other industry leaders, Flight Design offers viable and affordable platforms to reduce the cost of flight training and make electric-powered flight an economic reality.

DESIGN

EXTERIOR

The spacious ‘extra-large’ cabin of the F2e has been designed for extra rigidity and incorporates a combination of dynamically tested passenger seats, panel-mounted AMSAFE ™ airbags, and an Airframe Emergency Parachute System (AEPS) for your safety.

INTERIOR

The giant cabin of the F2e and the Garmin G3X avionics suite gives the impression of a much larger aircraft. Excellent visibility and the naturally quiet effect of electric flight reduce stress and improve student productivity. Large gullwing doors held up by gas struts make entering and taking your seat easy. Leather-covered, electrically adjustable seats and easy adjustment in height and leg length inflight. The panel-mounted AMSAFE airbags and inertial reel harnesses ensure safety and ease of movement.

PERFORMANCE AND SPECIFICATIONS

THE FUTURE AIRPLANE

The F2e is based upon the Flight Design F Series modular platform. All F Series variants are designed and built according to EASA CS-23 and FAA Part 23 requirements. This allows more opportunities for increasing performance, allows all uses including Personal, Flight training, and Commercial rental anywhere in the world. The F2e will not be restricted like electric-powered Ultralights or LSA types which have no international regulatory path, so it will be certified to VFR Day-Night and eventually, IFR. The F2e uses the structure of the soon-to-debut F4 four-seat version, allowing a 1000 kg (2200 lbs.) MTOW. This provides an ample amount of onboard energy storage (100 kWh) for the F2e’s performance and duration goals using today’s technology.
