#video | the world's First aircraft with an electric motor crashed

Cars and planes annually emit into the air tons of greenhouse gases that accumulate in the atmosphere of our planet and are one of the main causes of global warming. To reduce the amount of emissions trying virtually the entire world — mostly, people want to gradually take the public transport with electric engines, which practically does not harm the environment. The transition to electrical energy is particularly interested in Norway, which in 2017 became the leader in sales of electric vehicles, and by 2040 wants . Unfortunately, with the aircraft business is going bad — recently electric Electro Alpha plane crashed.

Alpha Electro is the world's first aircraft with an electric motor, which is released into production. It was developed by Slovenian company Pipistrel, which belongs to Norwegian airports operator Avinor. At a mass of about 500 kilograms, it accommodates two people, including the pilot. The battery of the aircraft can charge per hour and this energy is sufficient for approximately 60 minutes of flight at altitude to 400 meters at speeds up to 160 kilometers per hour.

the crash of the plane with electric engine

To find the faults and constantly improve the aircraft, Avinor, the company periodically carries out passenger flights. Recently, in the pilot's seat sat the head of the company Duck Falk-Petersen, to independently move one of the Norwegian official from one place to another. Unfortunately, while flying over the Norwegian town of Arendal, he had to make an emergency landing into the lake. The blow was soft and no one was hurt, but the incident can greatly affect the development of electric aviation in Norway.

Unfortunately, the time of the crash anyone didn't manage to shoot. But there is a video where rescuers pulled the plane out of the water.

the Cause of the crash

The head of the company did not identify the cause of the accident. According to him, he ran into some issues when piloting, called rescuers and started looking for a place to land. Eventually he decided to descend to the surface of the lake and, in principle, made the right decision. He acknowledged that this incident will complicate the work of the company, because she will have to spend a number of additional security checks.

It's quite a shame, because all previous testing of the aircraft Alpha Electro passed without any problems. For example, in July he was tested in Finland and demonstrated low noise level and environmental friendliness. Now, because of a small accident, Norway may not be able to carry out the transition to electric aircraft by 2040. Or do you think that you can? Write in the comments or at .

But, after about ten years, we can see the world's first racing electroanalyt. Its development involved the organization of the Air Race E (this is Formula E, but in the field of competition) and University of Nottingham. It is expected that he will be able to develop speed .
