Our goal is to have Heart ES-19 certified for commercial operation by 2026


Our first aircraft is the ES-19, a nineteen-passenger airliner with an operating range of 400 km. The ES-19 is a fully electric aircraft, and our goal is to have the aircraft certified for commercial operation by 2026.


At Heart we’re working at the cutting edge of technology while contributing towards a sustainable future.

Heart’s Hangar

Heart’s main office and hangar facility is located at Säve Airport in Gothenburg, Sweden.


We’re a small and yet a highly skilled team that have made key contributions to over 100 aircraft.
