It’s official, the Eviation Alice electric plane has completed its first flight. The aircraft lifted off at 7:10 a.m. from Grant County International Airport (MWH) and flew for 8 minutes at an altitude of 3,500 feet. This demonstrator provided the company with valuable data to further optimize the aircraft for commercial production.

Power comes from an electric propulsion system that drives two propellers on its T-shaped tail that is good for a 288-mile range on a single charge. It has a max takeoff weight (MTOW) of 18,400 lb (8,346 kg), while the it can hit a top speed of 299 mph. So far, US-based Cape Air and Global Crossing Airlines have placed orders for 75 and 50 Alice aircraft respectively. For transporting large payloads, there’s the DARPA Liberty seaplane.
