Airbus has awarded its longstanding partner Spirit AeroSystems to build the wing of its CityAirbus NextGen “flying taxi” aircraft. CityAirbus is the planemaker’s subsidiary and is building an all-electric, four-seater vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft as part of reducing congestion in major cities. It comes as the rising aircraft concept is set to enter service
As part of the MOU, the companies are expected to study the challenges of hydrogen regulations, supply, infrastructure and fuelling for aviation, ranging from the production of hydrogen to its delivery to airports and transfer on-board aircraft.
It carried 500 gallons of SAF and the same amount of common jet fuel in the other engine to prove there are “no operational differences,” according to the Chicago-based carrier.
Airbus has launched an “extra-performing” demonstrator project that is set to test aircraft wings that can reconfigure during flight and reduce emissions. Unveiled at the Airbus summit this week – focused on sustainable aviation – the project will undergo research to test technologies that can improve wing performance for future aircraft. The European planemaker will
As Brazil climbs out of the COVID-19 crisis, Embraer’s Eve will lead industry groups to introduce air-taxis into South America, as the nation commits to zero-carbon flying. Eve Urban Air Mobility – a spin-off from Embraer – and partners will provide the first test simulation of Eve’s electrical vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) jet
