The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:
9 November 2023 - “The eJet Motor is the world’s first rim-driven jet propulsion motor, with the means of matching existing jet engine thrust but without the emissions,” explains Rick Pilgrim, Chairman and CEO of Duxion Motors. “The eJet Motor is novel, scalable, and can be configured to serve a broad base of airframes.”
The world’s fleet of over 30,000 jet-powered aircraft account for 2.5% of global CO₂ emissions. The eJet motor replaces traditional, fossil fuel burning engines, enabling the transition to zero-emissions flight for jet aircraft. The eJet is also quieter than combustion jet engines, which will enhance passenger comfort and impactfully reduce noise pollution for the global community.
