Presented elektrosamolet that can fly 1,000 kilometers
Passed last month, the International Paris Air Show (which, incidentally, was the 52nd in a row) never ceases to amaze. For example, the company Eviation Aircraft introduced the public a working prototype of the all-electric passenger aircraft capable of overcoming the distance of 600 miles (nearly 1,000 kilometers) at no extra charge.
A small plane that can carry up to 9 passengers and 2 crew members, was created by Eviation Aircraft in the framework of NASA On-Demand Mobility Program. By the end of 2018 the plane has to pass all the necessary certification and enter into production. One of the main innovations of the aircraft is the presence of a new type of rechargeable battery design. According to company representatives Eviation Aircraft,
"Used in our aircraft upgraded air-aluminum battery, originally developed by Phinergy Ltd. We have added to this buffer to traditional batteries, as well as intelligent power distribution system based on the use of analytical methods. All this together is a very high performance power system, allows you to use each "speck" of scarce battery power. "
In addition, it is worth noting that Eviation Aircraft positioning itself not as rivals other major airlines and private air carriers, but rather as an "air analogue Uber", alluding to the extensive coverage of our network through a sufficiently large distance that the plane able to overcome through the air, as well as the very reasonable prices for services.
