Electric Planes, Blended Wings and King Air 300 Training

If Wilbur and Orville were to walk onto the tarmac featuring today’s planes of the future they would, undoubtedly, be amazed to the point of awe struck. From propulsion to design, the craft of the immediate future have little similarity to those of the distant past. That’s why if you intend to be flying for the next thirty years or so you will want to make sure you start reading up on ELECTRIC PLANES, BLENDED WINGS AND KING AIR 300 TRAINING!

“There’s a company in Ajdovscina, which is located in southern Slovenia,” Dale Wolcott, President of TURBINE TRAINING in Manhattan, Kansas said, “that has developed an electrically powered plane that can be used for training.”

The craft Dale alluded to is the Alpha Electro, a light craft produced by PIPISTREL, a small plane manufacturer who notes that the craft is light-weight, and that its electric motor hums virtually noiselessly as it takes you airborne for an hour. Interestingly enough, each time the craft descends it begins charging its own batteries!

“From what I can understand,” Jason Wolcott, TURBINE TRAINING’s Vice President, shared, “the craft uses very little amounts of energy to power its 85 kilowatt motor.”

In regard to ELECTRIC PLANES, BLENDED WINGS AND KING AIR 300 TRAINING, both of the Wolcotts know that training of the future may very well be as different as the aircraft of the future!

“I am also totally amazed,” Jason added, ‘that DELFT UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY in Holland and KLM, the Dutch carrier, are developing a blended wing, one that is seamlessly attached to the plane rather than connected the normal way, as part of their Advanced Hybrid Engine Aircraft Development (AHEAD) program.

The proposed silhouette design will minimize drag, which will, in turn, reduce fuel consumption. The latter advantage will be further enhanced by the fact that the plane will be featuring a hybrid engine.

When it comes to ELECTRIC PLANES, BLENDED WINGS AND KING AIR 300 TRAINING, those at the TURBINE TRAINING CENTER understand the importance of ensuring that they stay on the cutting edge of Aviation Development to ensure that you receive the training necessary to allow you to accomplish your dreams and goals!
