Alice, the all-electric aircraft launched by Eviation

The collaboration agreement between GKN Aerospace and Eviation covers the design and manufacture of wings, empennage and electrical wiring interconnection systems (EWIS) for Alice, the regional electric aircraft recently launched by Eviation. The aircraft is aiming to change the way people travel, by making journeys of distances up to 650 miles more sustainable.

As part of GKN Aerospace’s collaboration agreement with Eviation, design and manufacturing activities are already ongoing on-site at Eviation (Israel) and in several GKN Aerospace engineering centres across Europe.

GKN Aerospace is using its capability in the design and manufacture of advanced lightweight aerostructures and EWIS – as proven on the Airbus A220, A320, A330, A400M, A350 XWB, Boeing 767 and 787, Dassault F6X, F7X, F8X Gulfstream G550, G650, G700 and the Lockheed Martin F-35 – to mature the design of the empennage, wing and EWIS of Alice.
