Hybrid aircraft manufacturing programme
What’s the innovation?
The Innovation we would like to present is the BEHA – A new multi-role air vehicle that can be piloted or unmanned, with Short Take-Off and Landing (STOL) capability, whilst lifting heavy payloads and reducing noise and emissions footprint. The first two prototype aircraft will be configured in hybrid electric turboprop and fully electric configuration.
The BEHA could kick-start a revival in British aircraft manufacturing, creating over 1000 jobs and delivering revenues in excess of £200million per year. In the Logistics and Air Cargo role, it can deliver more payload than any similar sized aircraft globally, with the ability to potentially cut fossil fuel emissions from Forest Fires by over 50% as just one example of this exciting aircraft’s
full capability list.
So, what are you looking to get from the event?
Faradair® is currently seeking a SEED+ round of funding for £500k, to relocate the HQ
under a single roof and to expand the team to complete the airframe optimisation
programme prior to the build of the full size flying prototypes.
Faradair® would like to finish what it has started and VFS19 could be that opportunity!
