Electric Air Taxi

Flughafen DeutschlandWith more than 60 regional and international airports, Germany has a well-established, extensive network and the necessary infrastructure for the implementation of the ‘electric air taxi’ concept. Emission-free aircraft with sustainable electric propulsion technology (hybrid systems based on hydrogen fuel cells and batteries) could be the beginning of a fast and flexible passenger transportation system and contribute to reducing road congestion as well as encouraging the use of regional airports. The four-passenger HY4 is ideally suited for this due to its sustainable, emission-free propulsion system and 1500-kilometre range. The modular propulsion technology system also enables larger, visionary electrically propelled aircraft with up to 40 seats to be envisaged.
