Boeing SUGAR Volt: Electric Airplane



 
NASA asked 2 Boeing-led teams to examine what airplanes are going to look like in 3 generations beyond the current transport fleet, and the most intriguing under the goals set by NASA is the SUGAR Volt.

SUGAR stands for Subsonic Ultra Green Aircraft Research and is the overarching project name for several concepts designed by the Boeing subsonic team, which includes BR&T, Boeing Commercial Airplanes, General Electric, and Georgia Tech.

About the Author

I'm a Christian, a nerd, a geek, a liberal left-winger, and believe that we're pretty quickly directing planet-Earth into hell in a handbasket! I work as Associate Editor for the Important Media Network and write for CleanTechnica and Planetsave. I also write for Fantasy Book Review (.co.uk), Amazing Stories, the Stabley Times and Medium.   I love words with a passion, both creating them and reading them.
