Zunum Aero announced that JetSuite will be its inaugural customer for a new hybrid-electric aircraft. It’s estimated that the delivery date will be sometime in 2022. Without disclosing financial arrangements, the announcement says JetSuite could potentially commit to purchase up to 100 planes.

The aircraft will be built of composite materials with two engines mounted just in front of the distinctive V-tail which will be powered by “Tesla-style” electric propulsion packs. The plane will have a range of about 700 miles and seat about 12 passengers. Aero will cost around $250 per flight hour to operate compared to $600–1,000 per flight hour in operations costs.
