E-Fan Electric Airplane Readies for Aerobatics
LE BOURGET, France — The Airbus A380 is among the biggest stars here at the Paris Air Show, but no less impressive is the sleek electric aerobatic trainer that is its distant cousin.
The E-Fan is the brainchild of Didier Esteyne, an engineer and pilot with a knack for electric aircraft. Two years ago he unveiled an electric version of the diminutive Cri-Cri, which made its debut here last year. Esteyne worked with EADS — corporate parent to Airbus — on the Cri-Cri, and the two decided to team up again on what became the E-Fan.
