(DERBYSHIRE, U.K.) Rolls-Royce Electric Aircraft Report: Spirit of Innovation plane could be the world’s fastest all-electric aircraft #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.22: The firm – whose aerospace headquarters are based in Derby – said the plane reached a top speed of 387.4 mph (623 km/h) during test runs at an experimental aircraft testing site.

#AceDailyNews says according to BBC Business News Report: Rolls-Royce says its all-electric aircraft ‘is world’s fastest’ Rolls-Royce: Spirit of Innovation uses a 400kW electric powertrain….Rolls-Royce said Spirit of Innovation was more than 132 mph (213.04 km/h) faster than the previous record set by the Siemens eAircraft powered Extra 330 LE Aerobatic aircraft in 2017.

The testing took place at Boscombe Down experimental aircraft testing site

It is thought to have set new World Records over three different distances. 

The figures have been sent to the World Air Sports Federation for verification.

The test flights took place at Boscombe Down in Amesbury, Wiltshire, on 16 November.

The top speed was achieved by test pilot and director of flight operations Phill O’Dell.

“This is the highlight of my career and is an incredible achievement for the whole team,” he said.

It reached a top speed of 345.4 mph (555.9 km/h) over 1.9 miles (3 km) and 330 mph (532.1 km/h) over 9.3 miles (15 km).

It is also thought to have broken the fastest time to climb to 9842.52 ft (3,000 m) by 60 seconds with a time of 202 seconds.

The aircraft uses a 400kW electric powertrain – the equivalent of a 535 BHP supercar.

Roll-Royce said it also had the most power-dense propulsion battery pack ever assembled in aerospace with enough power to charge 7,500 phones.

Warren East, chief executive of Rolls-Royce, said: “Following the world’s focus on the need for action at COP26, this is another milestone that will help make ‘jet zero’ a reality.

“It supports our ambitions to deliver the technology breakthroughs society needs to decarbonise transport across air, land and sea.”

Rolls-Royce hopes that the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI) will certify and officially confirm the results as new World Records in the near future.

#AceNewsReport – July.04: The flight went down after leaving Port-au-Prince, the country’s capital, en route to Jacmel on the southern coast, after taking off around 7 p.m. local time, Haiti’s National Civil Aviation Office said, according to Agence France-Presse.

The flight usually takes around an hour. 

U.S.-based Gospel to Haiti identified the Americans on Facebook as Trent Hostetler, 35, and John Miller, 43, adding that Hostetler’s wife and children had taken an earlier flight. Miller was from Wisconsin, a Facebook post said; it was unclear where Hostetler was from.

The other four passengers haven’t been publicly identified. 

“There wasn’t room for everyone on the first flight so Erica [Hostetler] and their 3 children, along with some other friends visiting Haiti took a flight and Trent [Hostetler] and John [Miller] were to come on another small plane soon after them,” Gospel to Haiti wrote in the post. “When the 2nd plane didn’t show up, they were very concerned and soon heard that the plane had gone down somewhere near Leogane.”

They said a search team found the wreckage Saturday morning and confirmed there were no survivors. 

“Because of the political unrest, the gang violence and so on in Haiti, they were taking this small plane to Jacmel where they would meet up with the rest of their family,” Darwin Hostetler, Trent’s cousin who was also involved in the mission, told the Miami Herald. “They were flying to Jacmel and then they were going to meet up with our missionaries then, who were going to take them to Petit-Goâve.”

The cause of the crash hasn’t been determined, AFP reported. Although Hurricane Elsa was approaching, authorities didn’t cite weather conditions as a possble factor.

The single-engine aircraft was registered to a South Florida company, the Herald reported.

#BREAKING144 ‘ EPA Aircraft emissions endanger peoples lives ‘

#AceBreakingNews – WASHINGTON:June.10: (WASHINGTON EXAMINER) The Environmental Protection Agency announced Wednesday that emissions from commercial jets cause climate change, endangering the public’s health and welfare.

“Today’s action supports the goals of the President’s Climate Action Plan to reduce emissions from large sources of carbon pollution,” the EPA said in a press release.

The announcement is the first step in regulating the emissions from commercial airlines that most scientists say are to blame for manmade climate change. The regulations fall in step with the agency’s efforts to regulate the emissions from cars, trucks and power plants.

The EPA says it is excluding military and smaller aircraft from the regulations.
