Enters The New Year With Big Plans
Bye Energy has extended its presence to Rocky Mountain Metro
Airport in Jefferson County, CO, and expanded its headquarters
facility at Centennial Airport in Englewood, CO.
The company is conducting ground tests for its Green Flight
Program at the Beyond The Edge hangar at Rocky Mountain Metro.
Beyond The Edge is committed to bringing potentially world-changing
ideas and technologies into practical use. The enterprise was
founded by Richard F. Schaden, an aeronautical engineer, active
ATP-rated pilot and Vice Chairman of Bye Energy.
The Green Flight Program is intended to enhance the development
of electric and electric-hybrid propulsion systems (EHPS) for
commercial application. The initial objective of the project is to
design and integrate a proof of concept electric propulsion system
into an existing, proven Cessna 172 airframe. First flight of the
electric 172 is expected to take place at Centennial Airport in the
Bye Energy Electric Motor Mockup
Bye Energy recently nearly doubled its headquarters footprint at
the TacAir Hangar 8 building at Centennial Airport. The additional
space was needed for engineering and development work on the Green
Flight Program and other projects. George Bye, CEO of Bye Energy,
said the aerospace and aviation industries in Colorado are poised
for growth, and the company's expansion is a reflection of that
trend. "After several challenging years, I believe we have reason
to be cautiously optimistic," he said. "Innovation is the key to
recovery, and alternative energy is our future."
Schaden, Founder of Beyond The Edge and Vice Chairman of Bye
Energy, said he was pleased with progress of the program. "The
environmental benefits are significant with electric propulsion,"
he said. "Ground tests of the EHPS have been an encouraging preview
of the flight test program to begin this spring."
