HYBRID-ELECTRIC PROPULSION SYSTEM
Performance for each propulsor
ARC’s aircraft use a hybrid propulsion system. A gas turbine connected to a generator charges the batteries, which provides the power for the electric lift and the cruise motors. The aircraft can also use the hot thrust from the gas turbine for further cruise acceleration, outside urban areas.
Radial and thrust bearings
ELECTRIC DUCTED FANS (EDF)
Better noise characteristics, enhanced safety and more efficiency in the propulsion system.
Flight Control System
The unique propulsion configuration, with totally independent cruise, lift and control propulsors, makes the aircraft safe, reliable and simplifies the certification process.
