A Slovenian aviation company has produced the world’s first fully electric plane to be type-certified by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency which means it meets safety standards and can be used commercially.

The two-seater is intended to be used to train new pilots and can fly at least 50 minutes between charges. The first Pipistrel Velis Electros will be delivered to customers this year.
