Project description

Creating the first designs of the 19-passenger commuter aircraft

Small (hybrid) electric planes just like the conceptualised 19-passenger commuter aircraft are about to change regional air travel in the future. Building on the latest advances in hybrid-electric designs, the EU-funded HECARRUS project will analyse advanced technologies for propulsion and power generation. The focus will be on coupling the most efficient turbine engines with electric power generators and recharging batteries. The ultimate aim is to design a small hybrid-electric aircraft that will generate 1 MW power and utilise two engines as propulsive units.
