Flying on liquid hydrogen
With Project Phoenix the student team set themselves a mission to showcase to the world that flying on liquid hydrogen is a green and environmentally friendly alternative for conventional flying. They work two planes: a prototype and a full sized plane.
The prototype is a 1:3 scale model of a motorized glider and has a wingspan of 6 meters and weighs 40 kilograms. Data from the first flight on batteries shows that the self-developed plane is ready to fly on liquid hydrogen.
