Florida Tech becomes first American university to operate electric plane (By Elina Shirazi)

The Velis Electro is Florida Tech’s new electric plane. It is the first university to fly and operate an electric aircraft in the U.S.

The tiny two-seater is waiting for U.S. certification, so Florida Tech is flying it experimentally to help the Federal Aviation Administration learn more about the plane by providing data from the first 50 flight hours and reaching new heights for aviation students.
