Pipistrel Velis Electro (x2)
Marking a first for the Air Tattoo, this pair of Pipistrel light aircraft will be the first in our static display that are completely electric. The aircraft are taking part in the pathfinder programme with the RAF, Elbit Systems and Affinity Flying Training to demonstrate the concept of a zero emissions aircraft being used by the RAF for training missions. During March 2022 the aircraft operated from RAF Cranwell where 20 pilots were trained to fly the aircraft.
