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.

Another aircraft: the air yacht

Dreamed up by Swiss engineers, the AirYacht is not only similar in name but also in function to the Lazzarini Studio’s Air Yacht – it seems that air transport is capturing the imagination of more and more designers who see it as one of the best forms of environmentally friendly travel.

Boeing unveils new hypersonic aircraft

Not much is known about the concept at the moment, but it is more than likely that the Mach 5+ machine will be used not only for space industry, but also for military purposes. Guy Norris, editor-in-chief of Aviation Week, caught a model of Boeing’s all-new hypersonic aircraft at the AIAA SciTech show in San Diego recently.
