eTaxi – for an environmentally compatible ground operation
Successful testing: Aircraft taxiing by electric motors
Roughly three percent of kerosene consumption arises in average during taxiing of an aircraft. Different institutions are working on alternative technologies for more environmentally compatible and less costly ground operations. Lufthansa Technik has proven with a technology demonstrator that aircraft can be driven on ground by electric motors. The data gathered during the test period is now thouroughly evaluated. eTaxi is likely to revolutionarize ground operations.
