Hybrid aircraft uses electricity and gasoline to fly

Portland,Oregon-based company Volta Volaré has built a new hybrid aircraft.

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.
