Have a couple of posts this morning that link new to old.
Think Defence’s first contributing author (Ace Rimmer) produced a very interesting post on the subject of fuel use and sustainability in military equipment.
It is a theme we have covered many times since and that particular post looked at fuel cell engines.
Bringing the subject right up to date is the EADS E_Fan on display at the Paris Air Show this week
The aircraft is powered by two 65kg lithium ion battery backs and uses an electric motor driven wheel for ground movement.
The technology is moving on at a rapid pace, how long before the aspiration of an all electric training aircraft is realised.
Then what next?
One could easily imagine an all electric unmanned air vehicle at a similar scale
