The high-wing, all-metal aircraft will be based on the design of an existing Texas Aircraft airplane. The two-seater will target flight training and regional transportation in Brazil, with a flight time of two hours and approximate range of 370 km. Oxis will supply a 90 kWh battery system using its high-power cells achieving 400 Wh/kg. The companies did not provide a timeline for development, but the use of an existing aircraft design will likely shorten the test lead time to within the next five years. While small fixed-wing aircraft is a good first target for electrifying aviation, less developed battery chemistries can be difficult to certify for flight, and narrowing the battery choice at an early stage could limit aircraft performance.
