  • EADS E-Fan is an all-electric, zero-emission aircraft. It can carry 550kg of weight with a cruising speed of 110kmph and maximum speed of 160kmph. But its range is fairly limited compared to conventionally fueled aircraft: it can fly only about 45 minutes to an hour. The benefits of electric flight include lower carbon dioxide emissions, quieter aircraft, and machinery with less punishing vibration.
