Rheinland Air Service (RAS), a European provider of aircraft maintenance and repair services, has ordered five all-electric eFlyer 800 aircraft from Bye Aerospace. RAS will provide service to eFlyer800 aircraft in Central Europe through its service and support facilities in Germany, and will be a designated reseller of the eFlyer800 in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
Denver-based Bye Aerospace unveiled its eFlyer 800, an 8-seat all-electric twin turboprop-class airplane aimed at the air taxi, air cargo, regional and charter aircraft markets, in April. The company has orders on the books from operators in North America and Europe, and is targeting an FAA certification date in 2025.
George E. Bye, CEO of Bye Aerospace, said RAS is an important partner for many reasons. “We have known Johannes and his company for 20 years, and recognize the significant role RAS has supporting business aviation for this important part of Europe.”
“The eFlyer 800, with its remarkable economy and flight performance, will support the European market while balancing the amount of carbon emissions,” said Johannes Schaesberg, CEO of RAS.
