Zunum Aero (Boeinging jonkilainen spinno tai ainakin suojatti) kehittää lyhyen matkan max. 12-paikkaista sähkölentokonetta.
"The new aircraft will eliminate the roar of combustion-based engines, powered instead by twin propulsors attached to the rear of its frame. The ducted, or covered, fans will be driven by electric motors. A conventional fuel-powered motor will serve as a back-up system at the outset.
Zunum plans to provide aircraft both for JetSuite’s private charter operation and larger versions for its JetSuiteX scheduled flight service, he said. The ZA10 will have a range of 700 miles when introduced in 2022. The larger ZA50 is targeted for the mid-2020s and will be able to fly 1,000 miles.
Zunum is developing and building prototypes for electric motors, power and thermal systems, electronics, quiet fans and control platforms that will be tested on the ground later this year and in early 2019, ahead of the start of flight testing"
