Forget electric cars, Zunum Aero are developing a Hybrid-Electric Aircraft for fast and affordable travel up to 1,000 Miles with 80% lower noise and emissions.
Zunum, based near Seattle, is among several companies seeking to reduce emissions, noise and travel costs with electric planes. Zunum’s planes will be battery powered, with a jetfuel-powered turbogenerator to extend their range.
These aircraft, as part of new regional electric air networks, will offer a fast, flexible and affordable alternative to highways and high-speed rail, operating point-to-point and as feeders to hub airports.
With Zunum Aero, you will be able to simply drive to a nearby airfield and walk to your aircraft with bags in tow, for a trip that will take half the time and at a much lower fare. Get to business meetings in half the time - or maybe more fun to skip the meeting and hit the ski slopes instead!
