Equator’s P2 Xcursion hybrid amphibious aircraft just made its first flight out of ground effect.

Hybrid bio based technologies as a bridging technology, which can provide green flight whilst still delivering suitable long range capability.



“The P2 is made to be an SUV of the sky, as well as an exploration vehicle. Such aircraft require range which we can deliver.”

The novel hybrid propulsion system (EHPS) provides range, fuel efficiency and redundancy with all the benefits of electric power. With a well designed control management system, the total pilot workload is reduced and higher levels of security are achieved.

“On the last day of march the prototype was put through its first real big tests, and so was the whole team. We were so happy to finally reach this point. We’d like to thank @VardeSolutions who helped document the flights in a perfect way, and capture the moments as they took place, and Adrian Sveberg for adding the tunes.”
