ELectric Innovative Commuter Aircraft

Project description

Small hybrid-electric aircraft headed for take-off

Europe has adopted the Flight Path 2050 challenge – by 2050, 90 % of the travellers should be able to reach door-to-door destinations in Europe within four hours. Without the Small Air Transport system, optimised for short distances and for multiple but narrow passenger flows, this challenge cannot be met. The EU-funded ELICA project will work on the conceptual design of a 19-passenger commuter aircraft based on alternative propulsion concepts (hybrid electric) targeting near-zero CO2 emissions. The final concept design will pave the way to an innovative aircraft demonstrator. This will provide the European aeronautical industry an important boost in the global race for the next-generation efficient commuter aircraft for regional mobility.
