    • GE works on things that matter. The best people and the best technologies taking on the toughest challenges. Finding solutions in energy, health and home, transportation and finance. Building, powering, moving and curing the world. Not just imagining. Doing. GE works.
    • 4500 horsepower! Amazing that the camshaft only really powers the alternator... but I am assuming that the amount of power that alternator / generator is producing makes it quite a bear to move?
    • Ohio-based Workhorse Group, which builds hybrid electric trucks for UPS, FedEx and others, thinks it's time to rethink the design characteristics of the traditional helicopter. The first stab at it is the SureFly VTOL aircraft. It attracted huge attention at the Innovations Center at AirVenture Oshkosh this past summer. Aviation Consumer Editor Larry Anglisano took a close look and prepared this product video.   2L 4 cylinder engine power for the  2 100 KWH redundant generators for the 3 phase AC 8 independent motors

    • Dawn of a revolution in urban mobility The premiere of manned flights with the world’s first certified Multicopter, e-volo’s Volocopter VC200, marks the beginning of a new era in urban mobility. For the first time humans’ dream of personal flight as a daily routine becomes attainable. As such it not only offers more widespread use in conventional aircraft domains, but brings us another step closer to air taxi services and entire transportation systems in the third dimension. “The flight was totally awesome” pilot Alexander Zosel said right after his landing. “I got in, we did the pre-checks for what felt like maybe 20 seconds, and after that I’d already got the all-clear for flying. I didn’t wait long, I simply pushed the lever upward and the Volocopter simply sprung upward in a single bound. It is definitely a sublime feeling to lift off, fly the first few meters, and then actually take my hand off the joystick and think that, yeah, it’s really as if I’m standing on the ground, and then I look down and there are 20-25 meters beneath me. So it’s definitely unbelievable what we’ve achieved here. It’s seriously unbelievable!” DE Die Revolution in der Mobilität der Menschheit hat begonnen Der bemannte Erstflug des weltweit einzigen zugelassenen Multicopters, dem Volocopter VC200, läutet den Beginn einer neuen Ära in der Fortbewegung der Menschheit ein. Selbstfliegende Lufttaxis bis hin zu ganzen Transportnetzwerken in der dritten Dimension sind mit der nun erfolgten Validierung dieser Technik in greifbare Nähe gerückt. “Also der erste Flug war einfach unglaublich” sagte Pilot Alexander Zosel direkt nach seiner Landung. “Ich habe mich reingesetzt, wir haben Vorchecks gemacht vielleicht 20 Sekunden gefühlt, dann habe ich schon die Freigabe für den Flug erhalten. Ich habe nicht lange gezögert, ich habe einfach den Hebel nach oben gedrückt und der Volocopter ist einfach mit einem Satz nach oben gesprungen. Es ist schon ein erhabenes Gefühl, abzuheben, zu fliegen die ersten Meter und dann wirklich mal die Hand vom Joystick wegzunehmen und zu merken, ja es ist als würde ich auf dem Boden stehen und dann gucke ich runter und es sind 20-25 Meter. Also es ist schon unglaublich was wir da geschaffen haben. Es ist echt unglaublich!“
