Posted: 2016 Jun 22
 
Slovenian aircraft firm Pipistrel has announced the completion of the 800th aircraft belonging to the Sinus/Virus family. This aircraft will be delivered to a customer in Argentina. 
 
“In the today’s world of crisis in aviation industry it is an enormous achievement to produce 800 aircraft from the same line of products! This is a success on par with the 70’s when the aviation was in the phase of its fastest development. The aircraft nowadays are produced in much smaller series, but we are going to reach and exceed the number 1000 within one year!” said Ivo Boscarol, the General Manager of Pipistrel d.o.o. Ajdovscina,
 
“This is now already certain due to the signed contract with Indian armed forces. This places Pipistrel in the leading position among all the producers of microlight aviation and LSA on the global scale,” he added. 
 
Pipistrel is one of the leaders in the manufacture of efficient and innovative light aircraft and has achievements such as: world’s first fully electric 2-seat aircraft, world’s first electric 4-seat aircraft and first aircraft available with three different types of propulsion: petrol engine, hybrid or electric. 
 
Established in 1989, over the 27 years of its existence, Pipistrel has produced over 1500 different aircraft. These include over 800 aircraft from the Sinus/Virus family, 300 powered gliders (both petrol and electric-powered) and over 400 powered hang-gliders.
