CABLE, Calif. — A new company, GreenWing International, has been formed to handle the production of the eSpyder (pictured below) and e430 electric-powered aircraft from Yuneec International.
China-based Yuneec will continue to focus on developing the technologies for electric motors and power systems, company officials noted.
“GreenWing International is a new company created to specialize in the emerging electric aviation market. We are proud to announce that GWI has been created to market the eSpyder and e430 aircraft, and bring the revolution of electric flight to the global general aviation market,” said GreenWing International CEO Tian Yu.
Since the first flights of its electric powered planes in 2009, Yuneec has been advancing its electric propulsion technologies, and all GWI aircraft will be powered by Yuneec electric propulsion systems.
GreenWing International will bring several eSpyder aircraft to AirVenture 2013 in July for ground and flight display.
The single seat eSpyder is nearing completion for initial production runs after undergoing development and flight testing during the past year. Daily flying demos of the eSpyder are also planned during AirVenture at the Ultralight Area runway.
