The two Alpha Electros ordered by the Tomorrow’s Aeronautical Museum (TAM) in Compton, CA have arrived at Oshkosh for AirVenture 2017!! One will be on display at the Pipistrel Aircraft booth and the other located at GAMA pavilion. Representatives from TAM will be at the Pipistrel booth to answer questions about their program and to talk about the coordination and collaboration they are doing with the Sustainable Aviation Project. Both projects have similar goals to provide flight training with the Alpha Electros and showcase the value of electric propulsion aircraft in the U.S. If you are going to Oshkosh, look up Thomas Paddon and Robin Petgrave from TAM while you are there and ask them about their program.
