The E-Fenix is born from the will of Michael Morin owning a recreational company called “Planète Sports & Loisirs”, based on the Ile de Ré who wanted to propose flights in respect of the environment, silent and without emissions.
The E-Fenix accomplished its maiden flight on May 12 (video to come) on the Sisteron aerodrome, head quarters of Electravia.
The E-Fenix is powered by Electravia
and based on a Power 2 Fly "Fenix" cart distributed by Atlantic Paramotor, an ITV Bulldog 38m ² wing, E-Props propeller, a Kokam Lithium Polymer battery pack with a capacity of 6kWh for a total weight of 137.5 kg (equivalent to a gasoline version).
The available range is 35minutes and recharge takes 3 hours (1h30 with the optional 2chargers)
To experience the sensation of silent flight at two there is also the ULM presented by Laurent Thevenot in Aero 2011
: “La Mouette Electric Trike
”, an electric two-seater ultralight.
