The world’s “largest all electric commercial aircraft” has completed its maiden flight at Grant County International Airport in Moses Lake, Washington, on Thursday.

The Cessna 208B Grand Caravan powered by a 750-horsepower all-electric magni500 propulsion system took off from AeroTEC Flight Test Center in Moses Lake.

The zero-emission all electric commercial aircraft was developed by a Redmond-headquartered company called magniX.

Work to convert the aircraft was undertaken by magniX and another firm called AeroTEC.

“The iconic Caravan has been a workhorse of industry moving people and transporting goods on short routes for decades,” Roei Ganzarski, the CEO of magniX, said in a statement on Thursday.
