The aircraft became the model developed by engineers at the Slovenian 2010 year, thus, the basis has been taken of the aircraft model Pipistrel Virus, which has undergone a series of small design changes, but at the same time in technical terms has changed radically.
Aircraft Pipistrel WATTsUP designed exclusively for private use, but, ultimately, because of its high reliability, the aircraft began to be applied and the air flying school as a means suitable for training future pilots.
In view of the fact that the mass production of the plane Pipistrel WATTsUP entered only in the second half of 2014 years, to assess the real demand there currently is not possible, however, experts point to the fact that, thanks to quite promising flight performance, simple service and maintenance , high reliability and relatively low cost of the project will be no less popular than the ultra-light airplanes Pipistrel Sinus and Pipistrel Virus.

The cabin of the aircraft Pipistrel WATTsUP has approximately the same dimensions as that of the plane Pipistrel Virus models, and, as before, it is designed for two people posting here. The instrument panel of the aircraft and the overall design inside the aircraft cabin is further modified in accordance with the systems and controls an airplane, however, at the rear of the cabin still has a luggage compartment allows the aircraft to take on board a small number of personal belongings. In addition, due to the paired control levers, aircraft Pipistrel WATTsUP ideal for the implementation of the training flights.
Powerplant Pipistrel WATTsUP consists of one electric motor feeds on Siemens AG due to the battery, and is able to develop traction in 67 hp Due to the rather low-power powerplant plane has a number of restrictions on the movement speed, in particular, the maximum rate of about 195 km \ h., While cruising flight speed is set at 157 km \ h. In addition, as the capacity of the battery used is very limited, the aircraft can overcome a distance of up to 225 kilometers, which currently is very small, but experts assumptions in the near future the company «Pipistrel» will develop more advanced versions that could overcome distance to 400-450 kilometers.
