ELECTRON aerospace, leading the way in electric aviation advancements, is thrilled to unveil significant orders for its innovative Electron 5 aircraft from Air2E and Hopscotch Air. This strategic partnership propels ELECTRON’s sales pipeline to nearly EUR 200 million, a remarkable achievement in the company’s commitment to sustainable regional air travel.

Destined to redefine regional air transport, the Electron 5 stands as the cornerstone for regional air mobility, boasting a 750 km (466 miles) range with today’s batteries, poised for launch in 2028. This capability exceeds most mission profiles in both the USA and EU, where similar aircraft today cover routes below 500 km (311 miles). With its purely battery electric drive system, the Electron 5 offers operators over 50% reduction in operating costs compared to existing internal combustion engine (ICE) aircraft. Its spacious cabin is designed to accommodate one pilot, four passengers, and their luggage, ensuring comfort alongside operational efficiency.

Norbert Werle, CEO of Air2E, emphasised the environmental benefits of the collaboration, stating, “The Electron 5 will empower Air2E to deliver our services with zero direct CO2 emissions, in line with our dedication to fully sustainable business travel.”

Andrew Schmertz, CEO at Hopscotch Air, remarked on the economic advantages, “The reduced operating costs of the Electron 5 will allow us to significantly broaden our customer base, providing more affordable and accessible air travel alternatives.”

Marc-Henry de Jong, CCO and Co-Founder at ELECTRON aerospace, expressed his enthusiasm about the collaboration, “Securing orders from two pioneers in the regional air mobility sector like Air2E and Hopscotch Air affirms the market fit of our Electron 5 aircraft. It’s a testament to the trust and commitment our partners place in our vision for a sustainable aviation future.”

The parties have each signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) featuring explicit payment schedules, underscoring the industry’s faith in the Electron 5 and its potential to change regional air mobility for the better.

This partnership highlights the shared commitment of ELECTRON aerospace, Air2E, and Hopscotch Air to an environmentally friendly and economically sustainable future in aviation, establishing a new benchmark for the industry.
