Power is supplied via a battery and electric motor. The unit is quite, virtually vibration free, and can be operated for just over $1.00 per hour!

Mark Bierle is one of the most talented designers I have ever met. The modest, soft-spoken Californian makes a line of the best-flying and genuinely light aircraft in the USA.

I've written about electric projects: Electra Flyer/others and Sonex. The newest entry involves one of my all-time favorite airplanes, the Earthstar Aircraft Gull 2000. This ultra-light single seater flies efficiently on a very small wing, so when I spoke to Mark Beierle recently I got excited when he told me he's working on the eGull.

Mark is a remarkably talented and creative designer; his airframe could be a great platform for such a powerplant. While eGull is a single seater, two seaters will follow early development. Meanwhile, I look forward to a flight in an electric powered Gull 2000.

He's also worked in powerplant design and has now turned his agile mind toward electric power. We talk with him at some length about the advantages of electric-powered light aircraft and his latest introduction into the electric ultralight aircraft field.
