ELectric Innovative Commuter Aircraft


Future technical challenge and scenarios

The report will identify scientific and technical challenges for the successful of a 19 passengers commuter aircraft specifying gaps from the current SOTA A potential update will be voted to required performance for a viable commuter size aircraft UNINA Finally advise on the required steps towards the progress needed in improving individual system components performance RRD

Enabling technologies

The report will point out all the main innovative technologies available to be pursued on aircraft systems to make feasible a near-zero CO2 commuter aircraft. The advisory will be addressed not only to power train architectures components produced by RRD and SISW, on-board-systems components and airframes, but also on the alternative mobility scenarios (as forecasted in WP2 by ASP), aircraft requirements, regulations, costs and emissions.

Hybrid-electric propulsion architecture report

Distributed propulsion systems require to operate each propulsor individually, so that the propulsion power flow and split vary throughout the mission. This power variability and possible failure cases are the key drivers for synthesizing suitable architectures. In this task, hybrid-electric architectures of hybrid ships and proposed architectures for future aircraft are reviewed and assessed with respect to the aircraft requirements, operational characteristics and failure cases.

Dissemination, comunication and exploiation Plan

The dissemination and exploitation of achieved results. UNINA will cooperate in administrative items and will coordinate dissemination and exploitation activities.

State-of-the-art (SOTA) of hybrid aircraft design projects

UNINA will review the SOTA of recent research projects and literature on the design and applications for light, commuter, general aviation and large turboprop aircraft.

Economic feasibility study for a 19 PAX hybrid-electric commuter aircraft

The successful introduction of a new aircraft into the transportation market is highly dependent on the economic feasibility which includes the forecasted market volume, the profitable routes, and the specific cost of transport. In a first step, the transportation demand based on socio-economic factors and available transportation options will be analysed. In a second step, the competitive range of the operating costs for the identified demand will be analysed in comparison to the other existing transportation options. The analysis will be verified with the views of the airframers from the Industrial Advisory Board.
