The company Zunum plans to create a hybrid aircraft until 2022. He will have 12 seats. The cost of tickets for such air transport will be significantly reduced. The price is expected to be 80 percent cheaper. This is due to the fact that the aircraft will fly not only on conventional engines, but also on electric, whose work is cheaper. Engineers believe, that their creation will make a revolution in the air industry, since cheap flights will become available to a large number of people. It has already become known that hybrid aircraft will be able to fly for distances of 1600 kilometers.
According to the research, most travelers prefer to travel by car if it comes to internal travel, because because of the long time of registration and landing, car trips are faster.
It is expected that these aircraft will shorten the flight and landing times – passengers will be able to get on board the same way as when traveling by train or bus, baggage will be transported in the cabin.
This project interested Boeing. She has already invested in him a certain amount of money, which is not yet reported. In a well-known company they trust Zunum and are ready to cooperate for a long time.
It is worth noting that the electric motors will not only make the flights cheap, they will also accelerate them. Time spent in the air will be reduced. Also you will have to wait less at the airport. Hybrid aircraft are going to be used, first of all, for work in the regions.
