Aero Electric Aircraft Corp. (AEAC) announced today that they have selected Avidyne Corporation to collaborate on the development of the avionics panel for the next-generation “Sun Flyer” solar-electric training aircraft being developed by AEAC.
“The Sun Flyer represents an exciting breakthrough in aviation technology and we are certainly happy to be participating in the development of the avionics and instrumentation for this innovative new trainer,” said Dan Schwinn, CEO of Avidyne Corporation.
