Maiden flight is on the way

After the completion of the very successful presentation of the concept design on the AERO 2018 in Friedrichshafen, the Lange Team is engaged in the preparation of the upcoming maiden flight. Safe flying needs control and robust contact to the ground while descend and landing. The tyre needs to carry 1,6 tons weight and the preparation of such a solid-tech frame takes more than 50 hrs of handed man-work.

Successful Presentation of Antares E2 Design on AERO 2018

This is not a true general aviation airplane, but its features are noteworthy. Built by Germany’s Lange Research GmbH, this six-motor design has a 75-foot wingspan, can cruise at 135 knots, and has a 40-hour endurance. Intended for use in surveillance roles, the E2 uses six methanol-powered fuel cells and dual batteries in a hybrid propulsion setup that generates enough power to provide ice protection of leading edges and enough energy to drive radars and other high-end surveillance gear. It has a 3,638-lb max takeoff weight, can hold 660 pounds of methanol in two underwing pods, and carry a payload of 440 pounds. Manned and unmanned versions are being developed.
