NASA wants electric aircraft carrying passengers to be in service by 2035.mIn recent years, more and more places have heard about the development of electric aircraft. AirBus is scheduled to carry passengers with them by 2035, and the magniX set a nice record in the summer of 2020.
We can be particularly pleased about this, because aviation is responsible for a significant amount of greenhouse gas emissions. If we succeed in greening the industry, it could also have a serious impact on the fight against global warming. NASA may contribute to this in the future. The U.S. space agency has already worked on electric aircraft, resulting in the X-57 Maxwell pilot model, for example, and has now announced that it will actively assist the industry in developing such aircraft in the future. In this sense, the organization would also take part in the design and modeling.
In addition, the organization provides an opportunity for developers to give a ground and air demonstration of existing technologies. Stakeholders can apply for this until April 20. NASA’s vision is that by 2035, electric aircraft equipped with the Electrified Aircraft Propulsion (EPA) system could take off. These are propeller aircraft whose engines are driven by electric motors. Meanwhile, improvements are being made on another line to green aviation. Boeing recently announced that by 2030, it would fly every single machine with fuel derived from vegetable oil, animal fat and agricultural waste.
