“The Eviation team and everyone involved had an unbeatable ‘can do’ spirit!”

What was the motivation for Kasaero behind the Eviation Alice project?

To be able to contribute not only our experience in aeronautical engineering, but also new ideas to drive electrification in aviation.

We saw the opportunity to collaborate on a radical new design.

Was Eviation Alice different from other aviation projects in terms of team spirit, motivation, project management?

Yes, to some extent very much. Eviation was thoroughly international from the beginning.

The approach was: they seek out the best available resources worldwide to make their idea a reality.

It was an absolute tour de force to manage the emerging interfaces between the development teams so efficiently.

Above all, the Eviation team and everyone involved had an unbeatable ‘can do’ spirit.

How was it possible to develop, produce and deliver completely new components in an international consortium within a few months?

First and foremost, this was probablydue to the know-how of how to develop components and systems that fulfil all aviation requirements and can still be manufactured with manageable effort.

But also a communication culture and IT infrastructure that does not generate delays, i.e. enables agile management.

And a reliable network of employees, partners and suppliers.

Because Kasaero is in a top position in this respect, we have been able to work highly efficiently with our partners and suppliers.

What does sustainable flying and climate protection mean to Kasaero?

Of course, we are proud to be pioneers in actively shaping the path to a sustainable future. But Kasaero is also a team with many young families in the background.

Our future and the future of our children are at the top of our list. That is why we have always strived to channel our know-how and energy into the development of technologies and products for sustainable flying.

For years, we have been pushing the further development of electrically powered aircraft and are currently in the process of developing hydrogen-powered aircraft. The experience we have gained in “classic” aviation has been and continues to be a valuable lesson in how not to compromise on safety when dealing with new technologies.
