No details of the delivery timeframe for the deal, which is the subject of a letter of intent, were disclosed, although the Alice is due to enter service in 2027.

Eviation performed a first flight of the Alice on 27 September. The company continues to analyse data from that sortie and is hopeful a second flight can be achieved before year-end.

To date, Eviation has disclosed tentative orders from Cape Air (75), DHL (12), and Global Crossing Airlines (50), although there are understood to be additional agreements in the pipeline.

Evia Aero has previously disclosed a commitment for 10 of the hydrogen fuel-cell conversion kits for the Britten-Norman BN2 Islander being developed by Cranfield Aerospace Solutions.
