The consortium of eight partners who foresaw the need of more environmentally sustainable aviation is making significant progress towards clean aviation of the future.
MAHEPA is a research and development project applying a variety of technologies and strategies to enable hybrid-electric flight from small to large. In doing so, MAHEPA will contribute to decreasing of the environmental burden of aviation and will enable a better quality of life for all of us in the future.
The partners have been developing two specific propulsion systems for two 4-seater aircraft, keeping in mind the possible scalability of the components, meaning that all this green technology is being prepared for a much bigger goal – for future daily and sustainable commercial flights.
The MAHEPA project is now at the forefront of a significant accomplishment – the two pioneering aircraft, ICE-hybrid and FC-hybrid, that were being developed and perfected for the last three years, will take their first flights.
