On July 6th, the FUTPRINT50 teams from the University of Stuttgart and ADSE led the e-workshop dedicated to "Aircraft Design Specs & Mission" from our ongoing internal workshop series. With input from all consortium partners, various future propulsion technologies were investigated to test their feasibility in a hybrid-electric regional aircraft. Further to this, the vision statement was enhanced from the stakeholders’ perspective and reference missions were analyzed.

A very interesting article dedicated to the innovative initiative of FᴜᴛPʀIɴᴛ50 was included in Aviation Week on February 2020 under the title "Europe Launches Research Into Hybrid-Electric 50-Seater".
"...In addition to reducing aviation emissions, a hybrid-electric 50-seater with lower operating costs than current regional aircraft could open up new point-to-point connections between smaller cities at lower infrastructure costs than rail or road transportation, the project team says".
