Currently the global aviation industry is 99.9% reliant on burning fossil fuels producing significant amounts of emissions. The future path of global warming heavily depends on Carbon neutral transport systems. Domestic air travel in the UK is currently limited to around 40 airports with only a small number of commercially viable routes.
The Electron 5 aircraft has ZERO emissions. It's unique capabilities enable an additional 700 existing general aviation airports to be utilised. Combined with an order of magnitude reduction in operating costs this greatly increases the number of commercially viable routes.
A Fleet of Electron 5 aircraft will help drive the UK's economic growth by providing sustainable regional air mobility in the UK and beyond.
With a range of over 400 Miles, the Electron 5 can take you anywhere inside the UK and into Europe, avoiding busy motorways and saving you time.

The only 5 seater fixed wing battery powered aircraft in the world. Designed to utilize today's battery technology in combination with cutting edge aerodynamics.
* Electron will work with regulators to achieve certification.
We are a small agile startup with experience in Aerodynamics, Design, CAD, Piloting, Rapid Prototyping, Agile Project Management, Requirements Gathering, Digital Prototyping, UX, Accessibility, Rapid Data Gathering and Mapping, Fundraising, Leadership and Management, Digital Marketing, Workshop Facilitation.
"We won't settle for anything less than a sustainable future."
The UK based company was founded in 2020 by Josef Mouris and Richard Blackwell. We are located in England and Wales.
"We reward innovation and accept the associated risks."
Our product development and production methods will leverage the best leading edge technology has to offer. In addition to this, to make future autonomous operation possible we will be working with leading AI developers.
"We participate in collaboration to promote the transfer of knowledge and skill."
Richard is an experienced problem solver with an eye for detail and the ability to see the bigger picture. Richard has strong leadership skills with an extensive background in managing high performance teams of digital engineers.
Josef is an ex Flybe pilot with over 15 years experience. Josef has been working with a reputable aircraft manufacturer to design a more efficient propeller. A prototype of which has successfully flown in 2019.
The global transition to clean technologies presents us with a real opportunity. Creating jobs in the aerospace manufacturing industry and stimulating growth in the aviation transport sector.
Existing regional air transport has been struggling to be profitable in recent times due to low profit margins. Our electric aircraft will see a step change in operating cost reduction facilitating an increased profit margin and revitalising this industry.
'Environmentally friendly aircraft will increasingly incorporate electric technologies, and we anticipate more aircraft operating autonomously in the future. New markets for drones and Urban Air Mobility vehicles will be developed. We want the UK to be at the cutting edge of these exciting developments much as we were when Sir Frank Whittle developed the world's first jet engine.'
Aerospace Sector Deal
'The UK has played a leading role in aviation over the last 100 years and is well-placed to take advantage of a new generation of aircraft that could help to ease congestion and reduce the carbon footprint of the industry.'
Future Flight Challenge
'The UK has a proud heritage and enviable worldwide reputation for advances in aviation technology. The electrification of flight has the potential to revolutionise the way we travel and transform aviation for decades to come - ensuring we can travel worldwide while maintaining a low carbon footprint.'
Business Minister Nadhim Zahawi
'By 2030, we expect to see the emergence of entirely new aviation markets in the sub-regional and urban environments. Rethinking aircraft and associated ground and air operations in the sub-regional context could bring substantial mobility benefits and lower environmental impact.'
ATI ACCELERATING AMBITION Technology Strategy 2019
This is a high growth business, we project a sales revenue of £1.1 Billion in 2035 with a potential operator revenue of £2 Billion in the UK alone.
"With just one passenger we can achieve price parity to rail travel in the UK."
Our initial entry into the market will be private aircraft owners, expanding to air taxi services.
The demand for green modes of transport has grown significantly over the last 10 years. Together with the massive decrease in cost of batteries, we believe this is the right time to start manufacturing high efficiency electric aircraft.
From the Aerospace Sector Deal;
'Boosting innovation through a joint industry and government investment in the Future Flight challenge, with up to £125 million of funding from the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, which industry will match. This programme will invest in developing demonstrators of new aircraft (such as drones and other electric aircraft), new models of airspace management, new approaches to ground support infrastructure and new markets for aircraft in local areas.'
Key financial figures include, a base price of £450,000. This is competitive with other 4 seater twin or single engine light aircraft with similar range and speed. In summary, our goal is to manufacture, certify and sell our first aircraft by 2025 (Phase 1-3).
We are currently seeking investment for Phase 1, a full size prototype propulsion system and a flying scale model. We will then quickly advance to Phase 2, demonstrating our vision with a full size flying prototype.
