Legacy aircraft converted electric for a financially sustainable future

Our vision is to lead the regional and general aviation industry into an exciting new, sustainable era by enabling aviation operators to fly commercially viable regional routes in nil-emission, electric-powered aircraft.

Zero Emissions Aviation

The electrification of aviation has the potential to abate more than 50 million carbon dioxide tonnes globally, equivalent to the emissions of flights under 500km.

Dovetail’s propulsion is 100% electric, there is no need for an aircraft to burn Avgas or Jet A1 fuel.

Dovetail Electric Aviation will abate 1M tonnes of carbon dioxide per year. after 5 years of operation. This is equivalent to 2% of the global regional aviation emissions.
