On the first day of the Expo the Pipistrel aircraft were generating lots of interest among the media. We had visits from two TV crews and several other representatives of the media who were mostly interested in the Alpha Electro.

Both versions of the Taurus are also getting a lot of attention…

Tuesday, 14. April 2015: “The day before”

All day many people, especially from the German Pipistrel team, were working hard to prepare the Pipistrel booth for your visit. The aircraft arrived without problems.

Today Pipistrel was chosen as one of the “attractions for the media” by the expo organizer.

Dr. Tine Tomazic from the R&D department performed a guided tour of all the Pipistrel products on display and introduced the Alpha Electro, Pipistrel’s new electric plane for training of new pilots. Tine also spoke about the successful history of Pipistrel’s electric flight projects and demonstrated the user-friendly systems for supervision of electric motor power, the intelligent battery charger and the modular battery composition.
