Airflow Partners With Verdego Aero Explores Hybrid-Electric Powertrain

VerdeGo Aero's Diesel Hybrid System Combines A 180KW Generator With A High-Power Battery Pack

Airflow has partnered with VerdeGo Aero to team up and explore using the VerdeGo Aero hybrid-electric powertrain system in the Airflow eSTOL (electric Short Takeoff and Landing) aircraft.

VerdeGo Aero's diesel (Jet-A) hybrid system combines a 180KW generator with a high-power battery pack that reduces emissions and fuel burn by 35% compared to conventional turbine powertrains. Integrating VerdeGo's hybrid-electric powertrain to the eSTOL platform enhances the aircraft's mission capabilities by extending range to four to ten times that of a battery-electric system.

This partnership shows the advancement of electric propulsion systems for aircraft that will provide long-range capability, reduce turnaround time on the ground, and enable multiple back-to-back missions before refueling or recharging. Airflow's eSTOL platform will be one of the first electric aircraft designed for aerial logistics, providing a higher payload at a lower cost than eVTOL cargo aircraft.

"Our ability to rapidly move cargo from a warehouse directly to another warehouse helps e-commerce companies centralize inventory and reduce carrying costs. These capabilities are made possible by continued strategic partnerships like VerdeGo Aero," stated Marc Ausman, Airflow CEO. "VerdeGo Aero is excited to be applying its hybrid-electric powertrain systems for the Airflow eSTOL aircraft. VerdeGo's hybrid powertrain will enable the Airflow eSTOL to play a significant role in cargo and logistics missions around the world." - Eric Bartsch, CEO & Co-founder VerdeGo Aero
