The Alpha Electro is powered by a 60 KW electric motor developed by Siemens AG, an engine equivalent to an 80-hp. gas motor. With a 34-foot wingspan and a 21-foot length, the Electro shares essentially the same external dimensions as a Cessna 150. The Alpha tips the scale at just 1,212 pounds at its maximum weight. At sea level, the aircraft cruises at 85 knots and can deliver an amazing 1,220 fpm climb at 65 knots.
