Easyjet electric

Recommended Posts

Read an article the other day regarding Easyjet and innovation. Working with Wright Electric, who have designed and built a 2 seater elctric plane, they believe they will within the next decade have a regional aircraft fully electric with a range of 335miles, they are working with info from easyjet as to what an airline would look for to go electric...this range would suit easyjet on a lot of their current routes.....

 

Easyjet also looking at a French company that are trying to make tugs all electric, this could save the likes of Easyjet approx 50000 tonnes of fuel per year....

 

They are also now using drones that can be pre set with a plan to do close inspections of their jets at the maintenance facility, this can give a closer and safer inspection than current methods.

 

They are also working with another company to develope fuel cell technology that could eventually replace noisey and costly APU's......

 

I am sure other airlines around the world are doing this as well.....
