e-Go Aeroplanes

Partner: Angel CoFund
Region: East of England
Location: Cambridgeshire
Programme: Angel CoFund

Cambridgeshire-based e-Go Aeroplanes is the UK’s first manufacturer of lightweight carbon-fibre aeroplanes.

They cost significantly less to fly than traditional aircraft and are designed to be a product for discerning pilots who relish superior performance.

In May 2014 the Angel CoFund completed the first tranche of its £200K investment into e-Go Aeroplanes as part of the company’s £960k second funding round, investing alongside a new syndicate of 22 angel investors.

Adrian Hillcoat, e-Go CEO, said:

“The Angel CoFund provided capital alongside our private investors to get us going – without it our little plane literally wouldn’t have got off the ground. We’re one of only a few companies still manufacturing complete aircraft in the UK, keeping British aeronautical skills and heritage alive.”
