Green Flight Academy uses the first certified electric airplane, Pipistrel Velis Electro, for basic flight training. This new all-electric airplane is a game-changer for carbon-neutral flight training.
The airplane is a high wing, two-seat design with two battery packs that gives a range of 50 minutes plus reserve. With a fast-charging station installed at Skellefteå Airport a charging cycle takes 45 minutes, giving time for de-briefing and briefing of the following air exercise.
Velis Electro is not only emission-free, but also very quiet compared to a traditional training aircraft. With new electric commuter airliners coming to the market in the near future it is a great advantage to have flown electric airplanes during your basic flight training.
Our brand-new Piper Archer DX combines the well-proven design of Piper’s range of training aircraft with the latest diesel engine technology and state-of-the-art avionics.
The Continental CD-155 diesel engine runs on jet fuel or diesel and consumes 35% less than the gasoline-equivalent. Soon we will be able to use Biodiesel which reduces the carbon footprint to almost zero.
The airplanes are equipped with Garmin G1000 glass cockpit where flight-, engine- and navigation instruments are digitally presented on two 10.4” displays.
The four-seat Piper Archer DX is used for basic flight training, cross-country navigation flights and instrument training.
We use a brand new DA42-VI (2023) New Generation in our multiengine training. Its impressive fuel efficiency and TKS de-icing system makes it an ideal advanced trainer at Green Flight Academy.
The DA42 has 4 seats, convenient access, panoramic canopy and a G1000 NXi glass cockpit with an integrated 3-axis GFC700 autopilot and yaw damper.
Our air fleet is a combination of the most environmental aircraft, with electric aeroplanes from Pipistrel and new Piper Archer DXT with Biofuel.
