EAG Reveals Hybrid Electric Airplane Concept

August 23rd, 2020 | by Jo Borrás

Earlier this month, EAG, a UK-based engineering and development company, presented what appears to be the world’s first hybrid electric airplane for regional fleets. It's called the HERA, and with its ultra-low operating cost, whisper-quiet running, and room for up to 70 commercial passengers, the new concept promises to reinvigorate the sustainable mass transportation market

October 24th, 2019 | by Jake Richardson

MagniX has released a video showing a test of its 750-horsepower all-electric aviation engine. Called the magni500, it can be used in a number of existing aircraft like the de Havilland Otter and Beaver seaplanes, and in ones designed to be all-electric

The Netherlands Aerospace Centre Stuns The World, Opens Research Facility For The Future Of Electric Mobility

July 5th, 2018 | by Nicolas Zart

Urban electric air mobility has taken to the skies with fury, so more airports are taking a closer look at the future of electric air mobility. What was once thought of as something that could only happen in 20 years has already been making great strides the past two years. The Netherlands Aerospace Centre (NLR) believes in the future of electric aviation so much and is so eager to contribute to the cause that it opened its research facility in Marknesse, Netherlands, to help develop the future of electric mobility

Rising Temperatures To Impose High Costs On Aviation Industry Over Coming Decades, Research Finds

July 30th, 2017 | by James Ayre

The increasingly extreme temperatures that we can expect in many parts of the world over the coming decades as a result of anthropogenic climate change will considerably drive up aviation industry operating costs — owing to a need to regularly reduce takeoff weights when temperatures climb too high. That news is according to a new study from Columbia University
