Ecologic Aircraft


Rate This Concept Now!

Overview: The Ecologic Aircraft by designer Daphnis Fournier aims to be the first fully electric passenger plane, utilizing an inflatable structure above the main cabin that contains flexible photovoltaic panels to collect solar energy while flying above the clouds. For efficiency during take-off (when the most power is lost) the “balloon” remains flat, inflating only after reaching a maximum altitude.

Designer: Daphnis Fournier
