|Model||Zip Electric Advanced Concept|
|Description||A NASA concept designed to look at the potential to reduce operating costs by an order of magnitude through the use of electric propulsion. While the range of such aircraft are limited to only 200 miles, even using advanced batteries, there are enormous potential benefits by integrating the propulsion more tightly with the aerodynamics. Look at Hanger Rash Blog for an article, AIAA paper, and slides that further describe this concept.|
