China’s first electric aircraft - the RX1E Ruixiang two-seater - has been batch produced in Shenyang, the capital of Liaoning province, according to Liaoning General Aviation Academy, the designer of the aircraft and owner of the intellectual property rights.

The aircraft, which is made of carbon fiber composite material, uses a lithium battery for its power. Compared with a traditional jet, it offers low costs, energy saving, safety and practicality.

A one and a half hour battery charging is enough to make a 40-minute flight. Moreover, each recharging only uses 10 KW, valued at about 5 yuan (80 cents).

The RX1E is suitable for industrial and agricultural use, entertainment and teaching purposes. It is also suitable for high precision aerial surveying due to its low level of vibration.
