Standardized electric plane charging solution

Up until now, there was no standard for electric plane charging. As a result, each airport is equipped differently. With SKYCHARGE powered by Green Motion and Pipistrel, an open worldwide standard is now taking shape to prove state-of-the art electric plane charging.
