About this event

This seminar aims to introduce the audience to hybrid electric powered aircraft. Hybrid-Electric is where most or all of the thrust is provided electrically. Clearly the latter has much broader implications for the electrical power field and indeed for air transport (as this could have a major impact on global CO2 emissions!). The subject is slowly gaining recognition in the airline industry. Essentially, the industry is aware that its growth will attract negative ‘green’ headlines and have been looking for ways to improve. NASA worked out that doing away with fuel tanks allows designers to drastically change the design of aircraft further increasing efficiency.
