Air Race E Showcased Its Electrically Powered Aircraft
Air Race E is an aircraft racing tournament that is held by Airbus. Recently, Air Race E revealed a fully electric racing aircraft, tiled ‘White Lighting.’
The aircraft was created by Condor Aviation and it is a single-seat racing aircraft. White Lighting is powered by an electric motor that can bring the aircraft to speeds of 300 mph. The aircraft was designed to complete sharp turns for a race that takes place approximately 30 feet above the ground.
Air Race E will begin in 2020, and it will continue to finalize its logistics. Eight teams are scheduled to compete in the first race, which will take place within a few days.
Electric aircraft racing tournaments could be a good way for organizations to create and test different technologies to advance the electric aircraft industry as a whole.
