EMBRAER DEMONSTRATOR AIRCRAFT WITH ELECTRIC PROPULSION TECHNOLOGY

Embraer has unveiled images of the demonstrator aircraft with 100% electric propulsion technology, which is currently under development.

The prototype has a special paint scheme and is ready to receive systems and components.

The aircraft’s electric motor and controller are being manufactured by WEG at the company’s headquarters in Jaraguá do Sul, Santa Catarina, Brazil, as part of the scientific and technological cooperation agreement for jointly development of electrification technologies.

Advances on the project include the partnership with Parker Aerospace that will be responsible to supply the cooling system for the demonstrator aircraft.

On the forthcoming months, the companies’ technical teams will continue to test the systems in the labs preparing the integration in the demonstrator aircraft for testing under real operating conditions.

The first flight of the prototype is scheduled for 2020.
