The Electric Airplane is Coming

May 29, 2018 09:02PM

JetSuite, Inc., which has announced relocation of their headquarters from California to the Metroplex, and Zunum Aero, have teamed to produce a hybrid-to-electric aircraft that seats up to 12 passengers by 2022. The plane will be optimized for distances up to 1,000 miles, where efficient options are limited because of low numbers of regional flights, high costs and cumbersome door-to‑door travel times, making it a perfect fit for short-haul flights. Reducing both noise and emissions by 80 percent, these aircraft can fly near residential communities, accessing more than 5,000 underutilized airports in the U.S.

Zunum Aero remains on track for flight testing in 2019, rapidly growing its technical bench across power electronics, electric motors, propulsors and aircraft. Leveraging proven technologies for this novel application, the company’s engineers have experience working on some of the most advanced aircraft and engines in the industry.
