Elektra Solar has moved into new facilities due to increasing wing span of aircraft.
February 12, 2018
The wing span of our aircrafts is increasing and thus the demand of size of our production hall.
Elektra Solar has moved into new facilities. Now we have space for the realization of our ideas.
At the Penzinger Feld in Landsberg am Lech, a "Germany-wide unique project", a kind of mini-Silicon Valley under one roof, was created. In this new building we can future-oriented manufacture our aircraft.
In the first construction phase, a futuristic building with 2,200 square meters was built. 800 square meters are planned for office space, conference room and cafeteria and 1,400 square meters for prototyping and production. The complex has a bypass, truck dock and two cargo gates. As technology-oriented company, Elektra Solar was offered a modern work environment with a professional innovation workshop and the necessary freedom.
We are looking forward to your visit in our extraordinary, new environment.
About Elektra Solar GmbH
The aircraft Elektra One
was the first electrically powered ultralight aircraft in Germany and was
developed by the Bavarian company PC-Aero. The first flight took place in March
2011 at Augsburg airport and lasted 30 minutes. Already in June 2015, Elektra
One successfully completed an Alpine crossing as the first electrically powered
aircraft. Here, the aircraft covered a 200km long track, partly at a peak
altitude of over 3000m in about 2.5 hours.
By merging with the
companies PC-Aero GmbH and Elektra UAS GmbH, the company was registered in 2016
as Elektra Solar GmbH in the commercial register. To this day, the technology
is being further developed and, in the meantime, a complete family of
solar-electric aircraft has been developed. Elektra Solar GmbH works with
aerospace systems in the weight class from 10kg to 1000kg and can prove
far-reaching experience in the certification of aircraft. A key focus of the
development lies in the area of manned and unmanned, or optionally piloted
aircraft with wings, as well as the autonomous control of helicopters.
