Automotive technologies are being imported to the aviation sector. This is especially true for engines, where electronic injection, common rail and electric motors are gaining important spaces in the general aviation.
The DEHPS concept brings automotive-derived hybrid technology to the general aviation by promising:
“Operating costs and emissions of a single engine, performance and safety of a twin!”
This is achieved through the combination of the benefits of a highly efficient, downsized diesel engine and ultra-light, high rpm electric motor.
