French startup aircraft manufacturer Aura Aero has made the ‘power on’ roll-out of its electric two-seater aerobatic aircraft, the Integral E.

The roll-out took place at Aura Aero’s premises on Toulouse-Francazal Airport in front of investors, partners, customers and industry guests.

The aircraft will begin its flight test campaign in a few weeks. Entry into service of the Integral electric range is scheduled for 2026, said the company.

Jérémy Caussade, president and co-founder of Aura Aero, said, “The first power-on of Integral E represents a very intense moment in the history of Aura Aero.

“I particularly would like to thank the Occitanie Region, who was the first to believe in us and support the Integral project as soon as 2019, as well as all our investors and friends, who helped us raise the funds necessary for launching this project.”

Around twelve Integral are already in production, pending certification of the conventionally-powered Integral R and S. First customer deliveries are scheduled for later this year.

A tow-plane version of Integral E will also be developed, in partnership with the French Gliding Federation, to create the first French electric tow-plane,  reducing noise and carbon footprint of towing activities.

Aura Aero’s eventual aim is to develop an electric 19-seat regional airliner, called Era.
