HY4 at Hannover Messe 2016

The HY4 – a four-seater passenger aircraft prototype – is due to take off for its maiden flight in the summer of 2016, using an electric propulsion system that draws most of its energy from a hydrogen fuel cell. The partners of research and development, such as DLR Institute of Engineering Thermodynamics, Hydrogenics, Pipistrel, H2FLY, the University of Ulm and Stuttgart Airport, are presenting a model of the HY4 at the Hannover trade fair on a shared stand for hydrogen, fuel cells and batteries (Hall 27, Stand E65).
