The Electric Motor & Engine Aircraft ( hybrid plane ) is an
exciting new invention that's affordable, practical & has plenty
of unrealized potential.
There is ( at this time ) only one electric motor powered
aircraft anywhere on Earth that's being produced in a factory.
Here is the new AE1 Silent:
My idea is: electric motor(s) & engine(s) onboard the same
plane, with furling propellers and separate retraction
mechanisms. Retrofit & installation is a little difficult,
though not impossible. This brand new category of aircraft ( the
hybrid electric ) is surprisingly affordable & has plenty of
range. It goes the distance & ducks out of sight & out of mind
HYBRID ELECTRIC DESIGN & BUILD TEAM NOW FORMING: Do you know
any good A & P mechanics or Weight & Balance Technicians? All
parts I'll help specify are from reputable manufacturers. The
s are very reasonable. Help me build & flight test just one
prototype. Then we visit the EAA air show in Oshkosh. This
should create excitement that'll result in factory production
somewhere down the road.
Help with business management, grant writing & especially
funding is wanted. How can you help?
If your engine ever breaks down without warning, you now have
90 minutes of life saving electric motor & battery power. With
new Electric Motor & Engine Powered Planes, the pilot simply
diverts to the nearest municipal airport, rural LZ landing zone
or other safe location. Just one more happy landing, no deaths &
no serious injuries, in spite of the engine failure. Pretty
cool, huh? As an added bonus, CHINA, of all places, is now
making ultra-lightweight lithium ion batteries. Lithium, the
best batteries on Earth, just got far more affordable!
Stealth Civilian International Freedom of Travel is now quite
easy.....even across silly nationalist borders. You can go below
radar, with no visible IR infra-red heat and almost no or
absolutely no audible sound. Once again for emphasis: You ain't
on radar. You don't pop a 'hot' on IR-heat binoculars. You can't
be easily heard. Wow! The new United Nations Peace Corps would
have a field day with this one for sure! Initially, governments
may argue against International Freedom of Travel. So, this
newfound freedom will be covert = hidden at first, and then
eventually overt = open.
New International Civilian Stealth means that the noisy &
infra-red hot engine is OFF and electric motor is ON when
activists or ordinary folks are passing over sensitive
locations, like guarded national borders, prisons, and so on.
Air Energy Electric Motors on Gliders
AC Propulsion Electric
The ' AE1 Silent ' microlight glider from Air Energy, GmbH
uses a 13,000 watt, ~17 horsepower electric motor & lithium ion
batteries. The propeller furls & the motor actually retracts
into the top of the fuselage, between the wings. When the AE1
lands, the wings can be quickly unbolted & removed. The entire
plane is then put on a car trailer, under a tarp or in a
building for security reasons.
Civilian electric motor & engine powered aircraft can travel
between 250 and 1,200 miles unrefueled. Aviation fuel for the
engine can be alcohol ( ethanol ) or vegetable oil diesel (biodiesel ).
Plenty of fuel can be saved if batteries are charged with solar,
wind, or Made in Hanoi, Vietnam & Victoria BC Canada micro-hydro
