Engineers and scientists from the European aerospace and defense group EADS partnership with Rolls-Royce is currently engaged in the development of a new aircraft that promises to completely change the look of a commercial aircraft. The new airliner is called E-Thrust, and its key feature is that it is based on a hybrid electric propulsion system .

This means that in addition to using traditional fuels, this aircraft will use electrical energy to carry out missions. In the words of the people involved in this development, the hybrid traction system will significantly reduce the emissions of harmful substances into the atmosphere, and the level of noise emitted by aircraft.

Revolution in aviation, however, will not so soon. If all goes according to plan, the first flight of a hybrid elektrosamoleta be held by the end of 2050. Another interesting news is the rumor that is still the same EADS is trying to develop other aircraft designed for commercial traffic and working exclusively on energy derived from solar panels installed on its fuselage.
