225 Max talks with Paul Bertorelli about why Textron purchased Pipistrel. Textron Aviation owns Cessna and Beechcraft, but Textron plans to form a new business segment, Textron eAviation, focused on the development of sustainable aircraft, to manage Pipistrel. Hence, the merger seems less about selling more Pipistrel electric aircraft to flight schools, and more about leveraging their other assets.
