AURA AERO secures first Norwegian customer for electric aircraft INTEGRAL E

AURA AERO, a pioneer in low-carbon aviation, has announced that Norges Luftsportforbund, the Norwegian air sports federation, has become the first Norwegian customer for its electric two-seater aircraft, INTEGRAL E.

The agreement was signed at AERO Friedrichshafen 2024, with the federation set to operate the electric aircraft for towing gliders at its national gliding center in Elverum.

INTEGRAL E is an eco-efficient and economical light aircraft that can be charged in less than 30 minutes. It is available in various versions, including a tow-plane for gliders. The aircraft’s lightweight and resistant carbon-wood construction, along with its spacious cockpit and new-generation control panel, make it an attractive option for flying clubs and pilot schools looking to decarbonize their operations.

Drew McEwen, Chief Commercial Officer of AURA AERO, expressed pride in welcoming the company’s first customer from Norway for the INTEGRAL family and gratitude for being selected by the major aeronautic federation.

John Eirik Laupsa, General Secretary of Norges Luftsportforbund, said, “Norway is a leading country in decarbonizing aviation. We are thrilled to be contributing at our level by using this brand new electric aircraft for our gliding activities soon!”

AURA AERO, founded in 2018 and based at Toulouse-Francazal airport in France, employs 250 people and is committed to accelerating air transport decarbonization through the design and manufacture of disruptive technologies. The company is supported by various stakeholders, including the Occitanie Region, the French Public Investment Bank, and venture capital firm Innovacom.


As a member of the steering committee of AZEA (Alliance for Zero Emission Aviation) and one of the 16 founders of the European Future Mobility Taskforce, AURA AERO is at the forefront of shaping the future of low-carbon aviation in Europe.
