+




Boeing is the leading and biggest airplane manufacturing company, which has done the successful test of the first electric cargo air vehicle prototype. This electric cargo air vehicle can lift about 500 pounds and the team of engineers and technicians of Boeing have designed it and built this prototype in less than three months.

The company has revealed the new electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL), cargo air vehicle (CAV) prototype. It has completed initial flight test successfully at Collaborative Autonomous Systems Laboratory of Boeing Research & Technology in Missouri. The Chief Technology Officer of Boeing said that CAV will be used to test the electric air vehicle and it has developed the autonomy technology of the company for future aerospace vehicles. He further added that flying cargo air vehicle shows the big step in eVTOL strategy of Boeing and they have the chance to change the air travel and transport and they will also look back on this day as it would be their big step in the journey.

The vice present of Boeing said that Boeing researchers will use prototype as the flying test bed to mature building blocks of autonomous technology for future planning. The company and its partners in Boeing Research and Technology showed the development of CAV prototype and it complements the eVTOL passenger air vehicle prototype aircraft to be developed by Aurora Flight Sciences.

The electric air vehicles are powered by the electric propulsion system, which is environmental friendly and CAV prototype is outfitted with eight counter rotating blades to allow for the vertical flight. It is measured as 15 feet long, 18 feet wide and it is 4 feet tall and the weight is measured as 747 pounds. The company, Boeing is located in Chicago and it is the largest aerospace company of the world and it leads to the manufacturing of the commercial jetliners and defense security and space.
