Community leaders meet BETA Technologies Alia, electric aircraft

  • Published

BETA Technologies Alia, an electric aircraft, sits on display at Duke Field, Fla. north of Eglin Air Force Base. Community leaders and senior leadership viewed the electric aircraft on display and learned about the aircraft's capabilities, charging infrastructure, and training programs. The Alia is on station for test flights with the 413th Flight Test Squadron and is flown and maintained by BETA Technologies operators. The electric aircraft uses the Defense Department’s only on-site charging station to recharge the batteries. (Imagery by Michelle Gigante)
