About e-Go aeroplanes:
Operating to the north of Cambridge, e-Go aeroplanes is creating the striking, new, very lightweight e-Go aircraft. It will cost dramatically less to fly than traditional aircraft and is a design-led product for discerning pilots who relish new experiences. It uses novel technologies for performance yet achieves a low cost of development and operation by exploiting the newly de-regulated environment in the UK. Interest in the product is high and we already have first deposits for aircraft which will be delivered in 2016.
