Yuneec e430 Electric Plane To Ship in 2011

The Yuneec E430 is a twin seat, single engine, LSA class aircraft designed to be simple to use, easy to fly and with virtually zero vibration, it's very smooth. Because it's an EV it has low noise, no emissions, no fuel and with only 2 moving parts in the motor (the bearings) the reliability and maintenance are like nothing seen before.

Yuneec say the e430 will be ready for sale next year. If the company delivers on its promise, this electrically powered plane could change the world, costing just two dollars per hour to power its flight.

The first planes will cost $89,000. That's not too bad as far as private planes go. If its whisper-quiet engine is too loud for you (or if you've run out of power during its 1.5- to 3-hour flight time), the plane's 25:1 glide ratio will give you plenty of time to find a place to land or can extend the aircraft's range by combining powered and glider flight.
