Equator is a Norwegian start-up company run by a small, agile team and consultants with eight years of experience designing and developing the P2 Xcursion prototype and the hybrid propulsion system used in the prototype.
The design process started as a diploma degree, and gradually grew into the novel prototype and propulsion system being tested by the company today. The process started in 2009, and construction commenced in 2011. The team completed the “proof of concept” prototype aircraft in 2017.
The company is specifically focused on prototyping unique aircraft, propulsion and mobility solutions that fit specific market niches identified by the company’s specialists. The products and services created by Equator are made available to stakeholders for production based on a regional license production program. This is in the process of being developed by the team, with the aim of producing > 150 planes per year in 2025.
