H3PS (acronym for “High Power High Scalability Aircraft Hybrid Powertrain”) is a project funded under the European Union Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, Grant Agreement No. 769392.
The overall objective of the project is to put the basis for the development, manufacturing and in-flight test of a parallel hybrid electric powertrain for General Aviation by the involvement of three European GA market leaders: an aircraft manufacturer (TECNAM), an aircraft engines manufacturer (ROTAX) and an engineering company focused on world-class power and propulsion systems (Rolls-Royce). The H3PS project objective is to fly a GA aircraft with the parallel hybrid electric powertrain demonstrating the challenging advantages of the configuration but also its high scalability level. “Breakthrough” concept will be achieved by demonstrating the feasibility of a power scalability for up to 11 seats airplanes.
