Rolls Royce & Their Spirit Of Innovation Looks To Usher In A New Aviation Era

World’s Fastest All-Electric Airplane Takes Flight!  Rolls Royce’s new all-electric airplane, the Spirit of Innovation set a speed record for electric-only aircraft on November 16,2021. With a recorded speed of 555.9 km/h (345.4 mph) that was clocked over 3 kilometers. As a result, Rolls Royce has blown away the previous air speed record for electric planes by 213.04 km/h (132mph).

Moreover, the consequences of this will be most felt in regional and “hard to reach” airports all over the world. Furthermore, the simple fact is that fuel-powered motors require a runway to land on that is very long. As a result, this precludes many airports around the world from jet aviation. Further, as a result, the commercial airliners do not want to service these small airports.

In conclusion, the birth of the fast electric aviation era will produce planes that can land on very short runways. In addition, planes cheap and easy to operate. Furthermore, we are talking about also autonomous flight eventually.

Lastly, even more well known places like Arches National Park and Moab, Utah lost their aviation service due to the impracticality of profitable jet service to such a small town. The simple economics make jet aviation very costly and with autonomous electric planes, almost any American city of size or one willing to fund could have aviation. Allowing, transfer to a major airport.

Staking the claim for the all-electric world-speed record is a fantastic achievement for the ACCEL team and Rolls-Royce. I would like to thank our partners and especially Electroflight for their collaboration in achieving this pioneering breakthrough. The advanced battery and propulsion technology developed for this program has exciting applications for the Advanced Air Mobility market. Following the world’s focus on the need for action at COP26, this is another milestone that will help make ‘jet zero’ a reality and supports our ambitions to deliver the technology breakthroughs society needs to decarbonize transport across air, land and sea.—Warren East, CEO, Rolls-Royce

With electric aviation the future is coming rather fast and might change society as we know it quicker than many people can imagine. Congratulations to Rolls Royce on a job well done! In addition, an energy storage specialist for aviation Electroflight helped Rolls Royce, plus the automotive powertrain supplier YASA.
