The Linx P9 does not require a runway for take-off and landing, but its shape is different from most VTOLs and helicopters, so it will be able to carry more passengers.
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.
Airbus has revealed a hydrogen-powered engine that could potentially be used in the creation of zero-emission planes with the capacity to carry over 100 passengers after 2035.
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’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.
The Otto Aviation Group’s experimental aircraft, the Celera 500L, already consumes around 80% less fuel than a similarly sized aircraft thanks to its streamlined design.
