Amazing facts-Electric Plane wins biggest prize

Electric Plane Wins Biggest Prize in Aviation History

Nasa has awarded biggest prize in aviation history to an electric plane after its team designed a craft that flew 200miles in two hours. The $1.35million prize was handed to the crew behind the Taurus G4 plane designed by the Pipistrel-USA team. The Taurus G4 was in competition against two other craft as part of the CAFE Green Flight Challenge final, backed by Nasa, which aimed to make green air travel a realistic possibility.

'Two years ago the thought of flying 200 miles at 100 mph in an electric aircraft was pure science fiction,' said Jack W. Langelaan, team leader of Team Pipistrel-USA. 'Now, we are all looking forward to the future of electric aviation.'
