George E. Bye, CEO of Bye Aerospace, Inc. said:
“We are extremely honored to share with Aerospace9 in this extraordinary announcement. Bye Aerospace is on a rigorous path to achieve FAA certification on our eFlyer 2 airplane, and once that approval is obtained, to begin production on our expanding backlog of orders.”
The number of future purchase agreements for the Company’s airplanes is now 711 units, comprised of 2-seat eFlyer 2 primary trainers, four-seat eFlyer 4s and the soon-to-be announced twin-motor 9-seat Envoy. Aerospace9’s purchase deposits include 150 eFlyer 2s, 148 eFlyer 4s and 2 Envoys with an option to acquire an additional 100 aircraft.
Chairman Seunghyuk Cha of Aerospace 9 added:
“This investment is not just a purchase contract, it is a very meaningful contract that creates an amazing opportunity for Asia. Our company has a very important responsibility in the aviation industry as a new strategic partner of Bye Aerospace.”
Bye Aerospace is in the process of seeking FAA certification for the eFlyer 2 for the professional flight training mission and the eFlyer 4 for air-taxi and advanced training uses. All of Bye Aerospace’s current and future families of aircraft feature engineering, research, and electric aircraft solutions designed to answer compelling market needs. Benefits include five-fold lower operating costs, no CO2 emissions, and decreased noise. The eFlyer will eliminate the release of millions of metric tons of CO2 each year for flight training alone.
Governmental approval may be required for the Aerospace9 investment.
