sustainable air travel for 2025
set for creation in 2025, the ascendance flight systems ATEA is the culmination of 3 yrs of exploration and advancement to decarbonize air vacation. a smooth, audacious design distinguishes the 5-seater vertical take-off and landing aircraft. the skyview cabin at the heart makes certain simple entry for the five travellers.
ATEA provides a array of 250 miles (400 km) whilst reducing carbon emissions by 80%. it is also claimed that sound pollution is lowered 4 periods far more than common. this is all created possible thanks to tailor-produced modular hybrid engines and two horizontal propellers. ‘lift + cruise’ configuration with two individual propulsion units supply its vertical and horizontal movement – that’s why the identify VTOL. more innovations empower optimized, simple-to-use and agile operations to fulfil its vary of use.
‘we set-up ascendance flight systems with a very obvious vision of what we required to realize: to accelerate transition in direction of inexperienced aviation thanks to hybrid technology. the structure of ATEA is the concrete reflection of our values, our practical experience and of our know-how. the aircraft we are presenting to you nowadays is the outcome of massive efforts by our R&D office, assessments and trials on 4 prototypes and a great deal of considered on fees and the ease of flying this sort of an plane. its features deliver all the performances anticipated by a sector that the ongoing changeover has built far more demanding,‘ concludes jean-christophe lambert, co-founder and CEO.
