how was the first flight
In her very first flight, Alice touched an altitude of 3500 feet and during this time many important data was also collected. These data were about using the aircraft commercially, so that it can be known how it can be made better.
Gregory Davis, President and CEO of Aviation Aircraft Company, said that this history has been made. There has been no change in aviation technology ever since we shifted from piston engine to turbine engine. This happened in 1950 when this new technology came and since then there has been no significant change till now.

There will be three variants of the aircraft
The company is working on three variants of the aircraft. Which is currently in the prototype stage. It has a cargo variant, the second 9 seater and the third is a 6 seater variant with cargo.
