Atares: the first electric glider to be certified


I develop software for aircraft including this Antaris
aircraft, which is actually a
motor glider. It ws the first electric
aircraft to be certified with an electric motor. You find exactly the same
battery cells in the brand new
airbus 350. Because we did the job for them
in terms of certification. I can let the propellor turn
a little bit for you. You can fly a few hundred
kilometres with a motor, but you can also fly
on the winds. And then you just
retract the motor and it disappears into
the fuselage.
