Airbus’ high-voltage battery technology readied for EcoPulse flight test

Battery in the EcoPulse demonstrator is latest 'technology brick' to enable future aircraft to further support decarbonization.

In June 2021, Airbus successfully performed the EcoPulse wind tunnel testing at its facility in Filton, UK. These tests evaluated the performance characteristics of the propeller and the cooling process of the six distributed electric propulsion units. In 2022, the assembly of the demonstrator – a light aircraft platform supplied by Daher – is well underway, paving the way for its first test flight later this year.
