When you think of a generic aircraft, something large, sturdy and multi-passenger probably springs to mind. This new British ultra-light aircraft couldn’t be more different but its innovative design proved very successful as it completed its first public test flight. Watch the video here.

The idea of the e-GO plane came about as a result of de-regulation from the Civil Aviation Authority. The founder of the company, Tony Bishop said that they “Set out quite simply to design a fun flying machine”.

It just goes to show that innovation can be a fun way of altering and improving how we currently do things.
