Ampaire Begins Hybrid-electric Aircraft Trials in UK
Ampaire has begun demo flights of its hybrid-electric EEL in the UK as part of government-backed trials to advance sustainable aviation technologies.
Ampaire is flying trials with its hybrid-electric EEL testbed between the UK’s Exeter and Cornwall airports, which are 85 miles apart, using a combination of battery and piston power. It will be collecting in-flight data to monitor fuel savings, efficiency, and noise. (Photo: Ampaire)
