New form of aerial mobility

, October 4, 2018

Singapore-based HES Energy Systems has unveiled plans for the world’s first regional hydrogen-electric passenger aircraft, designed to fly four passengers for 500 km to 5,000 km.

HES is joining forces with a variety of partners to pioneer a new form of aerial mobility: quiet and zero carbon, personalised, on-demand, decentralised and economically inclusive of rural communities.

Designed as a zero-emissions aircraft, Element One merges HES’ ultra-light hydrogen fuel cell technologies with a distributed electric aircraft propulsion design.

The first flying prototype is expected to be tested before 2025.
