Bye Energy Continues Ambitious Growth, Expansion

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 spring.

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."
