Lindbergh Descendant Partners to Develop Electric, Hybrid Aircraft Power Systems
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is partnering with a company founded by Erik Lindbergh, the grandson of Charles Lindbergh, to curb emissions and noise from aircraft engines by developing new electric and hybrid power systems.
Lindbergh, CEO of Powering Imagination, and Dr. Richard Anderson, Director of the Eagle Flight Research Center at Embry-Riddle, noted that pollution and noise from aircraft engines is becoming a serious P.R. problem for aviation.
Powering Imagination's Quiet Flight Initiative is partnering with the Green Flight Program at Embry-Riddle's Daytona Beach, Florida, campus, where students and faculty will convert a Diamond HK36 motorglider to electric power for testing.
