The world’s first four-seater airplane which utilizes emission-free hybrid fuel cells to fly, has successfully been tested by aircraft engineers in Germany.
The test flight lasted for a duration of 10 minutes at the Stuttgart Airport in southwestern Germany. Two pilots with two dummy passengers were in the flight.
The twin cabin plane is named HY4. It was developed by aircraft maker Pipistrel, the fuel cell specialist Hydrogenics, the German Aerospace Center DLR and The University of Ulm.
The plane used hydrogen to generate electricity during flight. This gives it a speed of 165 km/hr and a range up to 1,500 km. As for take-off and landing, it relies on its batteries.
