The latest team to enter Air Race E is Norway’s Equator Aircraft, which developed the world’s first electric seaplane in 2018. “The Air Race E initiative is a great opportunity to continue our work in electric aviation,” says Tomas Brodreskift, Equator’s managing director. “The race environment allows us to explore the extreme performance characteristics of our electric powertrain, as we push the components to their utmost limits in a safe environment.”

Brodreskift says it’s all about transferring insights from the racecourse to production aircraft. “The goal is to improve the performance and design of our electric consumer-based sea planes,” he says. “Ultimately, we want to bring green aerial mobility to the masses with our highly efficient electric airplanes.”
