B.C.-based Harbour Air launches towards its goal of becoming the world’s first all-electric airline

One hundred and sixteen years after the Wright Brothers first took flight, the world’s first all-electric airplane successfully flew this morning at the Harbour Air seaplane terminal in Richmond, B.C.

Harbour Air, North America’s largest seaplane operator, announced in March its goal of becoming the world’s first all-electric airline in partnership with American engineering firm MagniX. Initially planned for Wednesday, the flight was moved up to this morning in order to avoid inclement weather.

The plane, which is powered by batteries and a 750-horsepower electric motor, was test flown by Harbour Air CEO Greg McDougall. The event was well-attended in Richmond and online, where the four-minute flight was streamed live for an audience of over 11,000 viewers.
