Flying people and cargo quieter, farther, and more affordably.
Electra is on a mission to decarbonize aviation. That journey begins with a hybrid-electric, ultra-short takeoff and landing (eSTOL) aircraft. Enjoy the operational flexibility of a helicopter with the much better safety and economics of a fixed wing aircraft.
2,500 lb Payload

Electra's eSTOL aircraft carries nine passengers, two pilots, and 50 lbs of baggage per person over 400 nautical miles.
Compared to vertical lift designs, electric short takeoff and landing (eSTOL) delivers more than twice the payload and ten times the range at substantially lower operating costs – making it the ideal choice for middle-mile passenger mobility and cargo logistics.
Blown lift is a special aerodynamic technique that multiplies lift to allow safe takeoffs and landings at slow speeds (think neighborhood driving speeds slow!) from spaces smaller than a soccer field. Whether flying from traditional airports or expanding into new markets, our aircraft makes community-friendly operations easy.
Short takeoff and landing (STOL) aircraft require less than half the energy to carry the same payload than a vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) design.
There is no tilting of the wing or rotors. There is no hover and no transition phase. The aircraft flies on the wing from takeoff to landing.
Clear fixed wing aircraft certification path under the FAA's FAR Part 23 and EASA's CS-23. Can be operated with a standard fixed wing pilot's license.
With more than 900 conditional aircraft pre-orders and options from over 25 key industry players operators, Electra's eSTOL is trusted to revolutionize air mobility and provide a practical path to decarbonizing aviation.
