The hydrogen fuel cell aircraft made its first flight

The hydrogen-powered four-seater single-engine HY4 made its first 15-minute flight around Stuttgart Airport. Самолет на водородных топливных элементах совершил первый полет (6 фото + видео) HY4, whose length is 21.36 meters, consists of two cabins located on both sides of the engine – such an unusual design made it possible to optimally distribute the load over the area of the entire aircraft, which reduced fuel consumption and increased overall load capacity. Each fuselage is equipped with a 9-kg hydrogen fuel tank, which feeds four low-temperature exchange membranes of the fuel modules. A well-thought-out system converts hydrogen and oxygen into water, generating the necessary electrical energy for the functioning of the transport. An eco-plane with full tanks and optimal flight conditions can cover up to 1,500 kilometers, which, by modern standards, is not so much, but it should be borne in mind that the activity of HY4 does not harm the environment, unlike modern air vehicles. The maximum and cruising speeds are 200 and 145 km / h, respectively.
