World’s first commercial electric air plane completes test flight

World’s first fully-electric commercial aircraft, 1946 Havilland DHC-2 Beaver has completed a short but successful test flight. The Canadian seaplane airline company, Harbour Air, successfully tested the e-plane fitted with an electric motor that was supplied by the American firm magniX. The aircraft is now dubbed the “e-Beaver” after the successful flight. Harbour Air believes that e-planes will go into full commercial service in 2022.
