Safety and operational issues for electric aircraft

Safety and reliability are crucial considerations in the design and operation of any aircraft, and electric aircraft are no exception. Electric aircraft present unique challenges in terms of safety and reliability due to their reliance on electric propulsion systems, which are different from the fossil fuel-based systems used in traditional aircraft.

What developments have been made in electric aviation in recent years ?

Electric aircraft, also known as e-aircraft, are aircraft powered by electric motors instead of conventional fossil fuels. These aircraft have received increasing attention in recent years due to concerns about the environmental impact of aviation and the need to reduce carbon emissions. In this article we will look at developments in electric aircraft in recent years.

Turbo-generator hybrid technology for aircraft

For aircraft, the turbo generator provides on-the-fly charging of the batteries and thus enables much greater distances to be covered. Rolls-Royce’s Hungarian division employs more than 100 engineers and one of the key areas of current development is the development of technology for sustainable aviation, represented by electric, hybrid, hydrogen and SAF fuel technologies.

Rolls-Royce Hungary develops power system for hybrid-electric aircraft

Rolls-Royce’s Hungarian team is also involved in the development of the company’s turbo-generator technology, which consists of a new generation of small gas turbine, electric generator and energy conversion unit, mainly for hybrid-electric propulsion systems for aircraft.

Eviation Alice could soon be airborne

The all-electric Eviation has completed its ground tests, during which another anomaly was found in the prototype. Despite the resolution of battery problems, Alice’s flight programme has been delayed further after another anomaly was found in the prototype during ground roll tests.

The Hungarian solar-powered airplane plan has hit the world press

The Falcon Solar, the brainchild of Lasky Design of Budapest, is still only a concept, but there is still a lot of interest in it. According to 2018 data, aviation contributes around one billion tonnes of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere every year, which is around 2-2.5 percent of global carbon dioxide emissions.
