Researchers from Mälardalen University are creating the first designs of the 19-passenger hybrid electric commuter aircraft

22 November, 2021 - Mälardalens universitet

Small (hybrid) electric planes just like the conceptualized 19-passenger commuter aircraft are about to change regional air travel in the future. The apparent benefits of the commuter aircraft are their fuel efficiency and the fact that they can be employed on routes that are geographically or economically far-fetched, compared to other means of transportation. Moreover, the global scientific and industrial communities are seeing aircraft electrification as one potential solution to reduce gaseous and noise emissions. Researchers at Mälardalen University, Sweden and at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, work together with Limmat Scientific AG, Switzerland in this research project which aim to re-think flight.
