Hybrid planes Zunum reduce the cost of flights will be unmanned

American startup Zunum is working to create a hybrid electrochemica for several years and during that time managed to achieve significant . Despite the fact that all his projects are still in development, he has managed to enlist the support of major aircraft manufacturers. The leadership of Boeing, for example, very vpechatlilo results of the work of engineers Zunum, and therefore hastened to give to the creation of future hybrid aircraft a significant amount.

Developers are going to release a few aircraft, the capacity of which will vary from 10 to 50 people. The combination of reactive and electric motors, the company plans not only to reduce fuel consumption in airplanes, but also reducing the flight, after refueling small aircraft will occur at a considerably faster, as well as embarkation and disembarkation of passengers.

The First aircraft will begin to produce until 2022, gradually increasing their capacity and modifying the design. In the long term from kerosene engines in Zunum plan to give up completely and replaced them with electric. But for this they still need to develop and test. The next phase — a complete rejection of the pilots in favor of automatic control systems by air transport.
