They are a future solution to the carbon footprint of aircraft. Electric aircraft already have a number of promising prototypes. One of the design problems is with the battery, which needs to be charged beforehand. There is an inventor who has thought of it. His answer is the electric airplane, which charges in the air.
That energy in the air
He is a Polish designer and a huge fan of revolutionary innovations in aviation. He found a way to use energy from the air to charge the batteries of special electric aircraft.
Michal Bonikovski explains that the main problem with electric aircraft was the weight of the battery. However, the engineer found that the air itself is full of electricity. And it can be restored by the friction that an airplane creates in flight.
“The battery required for transport should only cover the need for take-off and landing. The flight itself could generate the energy needed to sustain itself and probably recharge the batteries, ”explains Bonikowski. Sustainable Heaven Portal was quoted.
However, the question of how this electricity can be used to drive aircraft engines in practice remains open. Bonikowski, on the other hand, is convinced that air friction could be a clean source of energy that reduces aviation’s carbon footprint.
The electric aircraft charged in the air combines another solution to make way for sustainable flights, that of Otto Aviation in its Celera 500L. It is designed to minimize friction against the air during flight. In fact, the American manufacturer assures that thanks to all these aerodynamic solutions, the performance of the Celera 500L is unique in its industry.
There is no doubt that the aviation field will make remarkable advances in the future. Hopefully your next trip will be eco-friendly very soon.
