Bee-Plane Targets ?

Lower environmental impact for regional air transportation

The environmental goal of the project is definitely a core element of the Bee-Plane. Turboprop will reduce fuel burnt compared to standard engines used in this category of aircraft. Fuel burnt is reduced as taxiing is no more necessary for the complete aircraft. Agressive target is to reduce fuel consumption and carbon emission by 2.

Technical innovation

Main target of the project is to increase technology readiness levels of the Bee-Plane. The end goal will be to produce an innovative medium-range plane. At that time, teams and partners will have made a long flight together. In the short term, the project focuses step-by-step on the maturity scale in order to achieve first technological readiness levels/

Reduce costs for airlines

Bee-Plane is an innovative solution that will optimize airport infrastructures and increase airlines loading capacity. Furthermore, Bee-Plane reduces by 30 % purchasing costs and cost per hour for airlines.

Key words : future aircraft, project targets, environmental goal,  technology readiness level, operating costs
