This hybrid aircraft could revolutionize short-haul flights

The Bio Electric Hybrid Aircraft (Beha) hybrid aircraft, powered by electricity and solar energy, will be economical enough to cost less than the train.

In order to achieve zero carbon emissions by 2050, which is accepted as the vision of the future by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), aircraft manufacturers are carrying out many environmentally friendly aircraft projects. Among the existing projects, the British company Faradair comes forward.

Based in Duxford, Cambridgeshire, the company plans to fly the Bio Electric Hybrid aircraft in a few years. The Beha is expected to be a three-wing hybrid aircraft that can carry up to 19 people over short distances.

As with all electric powered aircraft projects, the concern remains the weight of the batteries, so it will use a hybrid system that combines an electric motor with a small turbine powered by biofuels.

Eco-friendly and cheaper than train

Faradair chose a three-bladed architecture. Although abandoned since the First World War, this structure provides very good lift with its smaller wingspan.

Another advantage is that triplanes have better maneuverability and can take off and land on short runways. They also gain altitude quickly. The biggest disadvantage is the significant drag generated by the three blades.
