I’m part of an enthusiast team that’s building an electric conversion kit for a SR22, and I have a quick novice question for you. I’m looking for a needle in a haystack.
Do you know anyone who fits this mission profile:
- Flies at least 2x per week
- Route is < 200 km each way
- One or two people on board, with minimum cargo
I’m looking for this person because we want to build this first plane with a pilot who already flies a route that’s similar to what our plane can handle. Our first plane will have a pretty short range because of battery limitations, and there isn’t much cargo space because of all the batteries we’ll need.
The tradeoff is a 30% drop in fuel costs, 3x reduction in cockpit noise, and obviously zero emissions, in exchange for reduced range and payload. I’m trying to find someone for whom that tradeoff is a “good deal,” which means they probably don’t fly very far or with much cargo.
Thanks a lot in advance!
