Today, Mayor Greg Mengarelli and City Manager Michael Lamar met with Omer Bar-Yohay, Eviation CEO, regarding the ALICE aircraft, and Eviation’s plans for electronic plane manufacturing (and integration) in Prescott. ALICE is the world’s first all-electric regional aircraft.
After the Airshow, ALICE will be shipped to Prescott, reassembled and tested. Eviation is hoping to secure FAA approval (to fly) within 2 years.
