In 2021, Ampaire's hybrid electric EEL aircaft flew 418 nautical miles, breaking the longest distance record for a hybrid electric aircraft.

About this event

The Paris Branch of the Royal Aeronautical Society is honoured that Dr. Susan X. Ying, Senior Vice-President of Ampaire supported by Ms. Pauline Bohnert, Energy Engineer, Ampaire, has agreed to present the recent Ampaire success in developing a hybrid electric vehicle as part of the companies strategy to reduce aircraft CO2 emission.

This event is part of the Society strategy both to encourage women to enter the aerospace, aviation and space domains, in this case, supporting the Society Women in Aerospace group and to aim for Net-Zero CO2 emissions in line with COP26 agreements.

In 2021, Ampaire's hybrid electric EEL broke the record of the longest distance flown with a hybrid electric aircraft by flying 418 nautical miles, proving that range is not an issue for hybrid electric aircraft opposed to fully electric aircraft.

Long and short flights performed with the hybrid electric aircraft have shown fuel savings of up to 40 percent compared to the baseline existing airframe.

Clean-sheet designs will allow further fuel savings due to more optimised airframe-propulsion integration. Additionally, using a 100% SAF blend in hybrid electric aircraft will reduce direct net CO2 emissions to near zero.

Dr. Ying has devoted over four decades to the aerospace industry, with experience at NASA, Boeing, COMAC, and most recently Ampaire. She is the SVP of Ampaire, responsible for global partnerships and operations. She is also the VP Aerospace serving on the Board of Directors of SAE and is a board member of the Lindbergh Foundation.

Dr. Ying is recognized as a Fellow of the AIAA and Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS). With a deep passion for flight, Dr. Ying holds a Commercial Pilot License and is a FAA-Certified Flight Instructor (CFI). She received her PhD and MS degrees in Aeronautics and Astronautics from Stanford University and BS in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Cornell University.

Ms. Pauline Bohnert is an Energy Engineer at Ampaire Ltd. and specialises in charging infrastructure. She joined the company in January 2021 and is working on determining optimal charging solutions for the electric aviation. She graduated from the University of the Highlands and Islands with a First-Class Honours Degree in Energy Engineering in 2021.
