Electric regional aircraft with distributed propulsion

Sev­er­al small elec­tri­cal­ly pow­ered pro­pellers along the wing in­crease up­lift. This means the wingspan can be re­duced, which saves weight, re­sis­tance, and en­er­gy.

Several small electrically powered propellers along the wing increase uplift. This means the wingspan can be reduced, which saves weight, resistance, and energy.
