We are E-Flight, a sustainable aviation brand since may 2021. We believe in a world with a quiet and clean airspace where everyone can and wants to fly. Without any sense of shame.

We started as E-Flight Academy, the first electric flight school in the world. Nowadays we fly with 4 fully electric planes and we train over 35 students + KLM Flight Academy students. We have our own hangar (E-Deck) where we are realising power generation in combination with aviation charging infrastructure. We are building flight simulators and start selling electric planes from 2024 (E-Flight Supply). 

Long story short: We grow fast and are very ambitious in our venture to accelerate electric aviation.

Recently we raised funding to roll out our plans and realise our dreams with the best possible people. One of our first priorities is to find a highly skilled and likeable person who can help us grow further. So, you like what we did so far? And you want to be part of our young and ambitious team? Then you can become our Buy and Build Manager.

The Mission
