Engineering behemoth targets electric aerial speed record in confidant jump towards battery-powered aircraft
On Thursday morning, a exhausted airfield in Gloucestershire will get a prophesy of a destiny of moody when Rolls-Royce reveals a aircraft it hopes will explain a new record for a ancestral company. Instead of blazing aviation fuel to take to a skies, a aircraft – famous as Accel – will strap electrons.
It has been combined with what Rolls claims is a many absolute battery ever put in an aircraft and a aim of outstanding a existent 213mph speed record for an aircraft powered by electricity. Rolls will aim a tip speed of 300mph.
It is cutting-edge engineering that signals a hopes…
