Ampaire CEO Kevin Noertker flew in the company' flagship aircraft on the first-ever hybrid electric flight into Palo Alto Airport, to meet with investors in the heart of Silicon Valley. This successful flight underscores the confidence Ampaire has in its technology. It demonstrates the reliability, efficiency, and readiness of Ampaire's hybrid electric airplanes, offering a glimpse into a future where air travel is greener and more accessible.

The landmark flight highlights the vital role regional airports like Palo Alto play in bringing advanced, sustainable transportation options directly to the heart of communities. Conveniently located near the famed Sand Hill Road, Ampaire hosted visits by local investors, key stakeholders, city council members and members of the press. Guests had a unique opportunity to witness firsthand the potential of hybrid electric aviation and its far-reaching impact on the future of transportation. 

Kevin Noertker, CEO of Ampaire, commented: "The flight into Palo Alto Airport is not just a technical verification of our systems but a clear message that the era of electric aviation is upon us. Palo Alto is renowned as a stomping ground for innovative startups that embrace new ideas and technologies. We invite forward-thinking investors to fly with us on our journey as we redefine the boundaries of air travel and push towards a zero-emissions future."

Company' innovation places it at the vanguard of an industry on the brink of transformation, opening up new opportunities for investment in sustainable solutions. Ampaire's optimized hybrid electric airplanes have demonstrated fuel savings of over 50 percent versus the standard airplanes on which they are based. Delivering substantial fuel savings and emissions reductions, these airplanes also decrease operating costs, retain full flight distance capability, and do not require new airport infrastructure like novel fueling or charging stations. These capabilities have enabled Ampaire to deploy these groundbreaking technologies broadly, including island hopping in Hawaii and Scotland, crossing the United States, and journeying over Canada and Alaska.
