Airbus and Siemens plan to jointly develop prototypes for various propulsion systems for short, local trips with aircraft below 100 seats, helicopters or UAVs up to classic short and medium-range journeys. In the field of Ultra Light, Siemens work with Magnus Aircraft, an Hungarian company. In close cooperation the two partners makes an electric two-seater fly.
E-plane takes off
Siemens develops hybrid electric propulsion systems for aircraft. Cooperations with several partner companies help to develop and test electric propulsion systems for small airplanes and passenger aircraft too.
