hall was loaded with electric airplanes and related technology. In
this week's AVweb video, Paul Bertorelli takes a look at some of the
new stuff on display.

Siemens collaborates with Airbus and other partners in the field of
the electrification of aviation. The basis for electric planes will be
electric drive systems from Siemens, like the world-record motor that
with a weight of just 50 kilograms, delivers a continuous output of
about 260 kilowatts – five times more than comparable drive systems.

Eviation’s Alice plane would have a maximum takeoff weight of 14,000
pounds. The battery weighs 7,000 pounds.

“It’s a huge battery with some aircraft built around it, if you will,”
Eviation CEO Omer Bar-Yohay told CNBC.

The Alice planes seat nine passengers and a single charge will be able
to carry it 650 miles, according to Eviation.
