Hybrid aircraft uses electricity and gasoline to fly
The prototype GT4 airplane uses green energy due to the fact that it is hybrid.
The aircraft has a hybrid powertrain, powered by batteries and backed up with a gasoline engine. The plane can fly 300 miles on battery alone.
With a power supply drop to 25%, the gasoline engines automatically recharge the batteries.
All in all, the prototype could change in a good and efficient way the aviation industry takes electricity-powered engines.
