Hey guys !
Everyone who follows the news of aviation etc. knows that Airbus has announced that the first flight of the E-Fan X is in 2021. What is the Airbus E-Fan X ?
The E-Fan X is a complex hybrid-electric aircraft demonstrator. In the test aircraft, one of the four jet engines will be replaced by a 2MW electric motor, which is roughly equivalent to that of 10 medium-sized cars. The electric propulsion unit is powered by a power-generation system and battery. When high power is required—at take-off, for example—the generator and battery supply energy together.
So in my opinion it looks like an Avro ✈️ but it looks quite good though
It is important to do something against the climate change (but we shouldn‘t represent it too extreme) and I honestly wouldn‘t care if I fly with a normal or an electric plane short haul routes. For long haul flights I think it wouldn‘t be able to do this
This is maybe the first step into the future of flying
What‘s your opinion about this project ?
