The electric plane, the future of civil aviation and the earth's atmosphere



Air transport has for years been responsible for 2.5% of global carbon emissions, and this share could triple by 2050. Although some airlines have begun to offset their contributions to atmospheric carbon emissions, there are still Significant reductions in these emissions are needed. Since electric planes can achieve the required size of transformation, as happened in the field of electric cars, many companies are racing to develop them. Electric drivetrains will reduce direct carbon emissions, but can also reduce fuel costs by up to 90%, maintenance by up to 50%, and noise by up to about 70%.

The first all-electric aircraft capable of carrying 100 people is expected within 6 years, significantly accelerating the timetable for the introduction of commercial aircraft without kerosene, with most manufacturers' announcements pointing to 2035 for the appearance of their first models.


US start-up Wright Electric Inc plans to modify the electric motors in a BAe 146 indigenous aircraft firstly manufactured by BAE Systems Plc, replacing its four spurt machines and converting them to an emigration-free model. 


Almost two months ago, Rolls-Royce Aircraft and Defense Holding Company unveiled a new electric aircraft called the “Spirit of Innovation” as it began its practical tests, and now the company has announced a new record!


Specifically, the plane was able to reach a top speed of 622 km / h, which is an unprecedented record for electric aircraft, and Rolls-Royce will seek to document it officially in the coming weeks.


Rolls-Royce explained that the aircraft relies on a 750-volt electric motor with a power of 535 hp, and is also equipped with "the most energy-intensive electric battery collected for aircraft to date" with 6480 cells, according to the company's statement.


But despite this unprecedented density, electric planes remain impractical for any long trip, because their density is about 50 times less than the fossil fuels of airplanes, which means that they are only suitable for short trips between cities, at least for the time being until we see a real revolution in the field of energy condensation in Electric batteries.
