PC-Aero, a German company that is developing the Elektra One prototype electric powered aircraft, reports it successfully performed the static tests on the one-seater for German Ultralight Certification Dec. 22. The structure of the aircraft (wing, fuselage and tails) was loaded up to limit load, officials report, adding first flight is expected to take place this month. The company’s goal is to develop a family of electric aircraft, starting with the one-seater and followed by a two-seat and four-seat aircraft — Elektra Two and Elektra Four.
