Our Take on the Whisper


The Whisper is still in early design and testing stages, but the design methodology for the Electric Aircraft Concepts group is sound. Not much has been released in terms of information about the Whisper since it was announced last year at theĀ AERO 2017 show Friedrichshafen. However, assumptions assert that a physical prototype is in works in preparation for a first flight and subsequent flight testing.
