Elec­tric E-Fan air­craft demon­strates air­borne E-mo­bil­ity

SP's MAI - - TECHNOLOGY -

The suc­cess­ful first pub­lic flight of the elec­tric E-Fan ex­per­i­men­tal air­craft was the high­light of Air­bus Group’s E-Air­craft Day in Bordeaux, France. The flight demon­stra­tion was at­tended by Ar­naud Mon­te­bourg, French Min­is­ter for Econ­omy, In­dus­trial Re­newal and Dig­i­tal Econ­omy, Alain Rous­set, Pres­i­dent of the Aquitaine Re­gion, Josy Reif­fers, who rep­re­sented Alain Juppé, Pres­i­dent of the Com­mu­nauté Ur­baine de Bordeaux and Alain Anziani, Se­na­tor and Mayor of Mérignac.

The elec­tric E-Fan train­ing air­craft is a highly in­no­va­tive tech­nol­ogy ex­per­i­men­tal demon­stra­tor based on an all-com­pos­ite con­struc­tion. Air­bus Group and its part­ners are aim­ing to per­form re­search and de­vel­op­ment to con­struct a se­ries ver­sion of the E-Fan and pro­pose an in­dus­trial plan for a pro­duc­tion fa­cil­ity close to Bordeaux Air­port. Air­bus Group’s re­search ef­forts sup­port the en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion goals of the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion, as out­lined in its “Flight­path 2050” pro­gramme.
