China’s first domestically developed electricity-powered aircraft has been approved for production by civil aviation authorities.

The Liaoning General Aviation Research Academy, the developer, said on Friday in Shenyang (China), that the two-seat RX1E aircraft can fly for 45-60 minutes with a maximum speed of 120 km per hour after an hour and a half of charging.

The academy noted that the environmentally friendly aircraft model has strong market potential, especially in pilot training and tourism.
