The Green Airside project aims for as many as 50 Velis Electro aircraft to be made available for rent to flight training organisations throughout the UK. This will enable affordable, ready-to-fly solutions for the new generation of flight training around UK and further afield, boosting the Zero Emission training centers for the pilots of the future.
Sergey Grachev said: “The 50 Velis programme for British flying schools is now a reality! We have closed the deal with the investors and completed the order of the first ten aircraft this week. This is a massive and forward-thinkingl step from Pipistrel and its network of distributors to make a real change in saving the planet! We don’t just talk about it – we act now! ”
