Curtiss-Wright to supply flight control actuators for Eviation’s electric aircraft


Curtiss-Wright has been selected by Eviation Aircraft to supply primary flight control actuation technology for the Alice all-electric commuter aircraft.

Curtiss-Wright’s high power density electromechanical actuators (EMA) are a modular, distributed solution to enable a flexible control architecture. The commercial-off-the- shelf (COTS) EMA’s design is lightweight, and plug-and-play to reduce cost, schedule risk, and program risk in advance of Eviation Alice’s first flights in 2021.

Kevin Rayment, president of Curtiss-Wright’s commercial / industrial segment said, “We are very pleased to have been selected by Eviation to help support the development of their historic all-electric Alice aircraft. Curtiss-Wright is committed to leading the industry in bringing the revolutionary advantages of electric actuation to flight, from fixed wing to rotorcraft, from business jets to military platforms.”

“We are known for our flight technology innovation and we look forward to working with them as we build our high performing zero-emission electric aircraft.”

Omer Bar-Yohay, Co-Founder & CEO, Eviation. “We are pleased to work with iconic partners who share our vision of making clean regional air travel accessible for all.”
