Hello,
When a seaplane took off this morning in Vancouver, Canada—with the CEO of Harbour Air, the charter plane company that owns the aircraft, at the controls—it was the world’s first commercial test of an all-electric airplane.
The zero-emissions plane was created by retrofitting a standard six-seater seaplane with an electric propulsion system from Magnix, a company headquartered in Redmond, Washington, that began developing new electric motors a decade ago. Until now, other tests of electric planes have involved either hybrids that still have fuel onboard or tiny two-seater planes. 
“This shows the industry, and it shows the flying public, that to fly in an electric aircraft on a commercial scale is indeed a real thing, and it’s viable,” says Magnix CEO Roei Ganzarski.
