" The internal combustion engines of
today's aircraft are very maintenance
prone, require ongoing checks and maintenance, and then of course, eventually, on
an ongoing basis, overhauls, a lot of, lot of
work, because they have a lot of moving
parts at very high speed, lots of friction at
very high temperatures, so you have a lot of
things going on that require maintenance, "
Ganzarski said.
" The electric plane has one moving part
in the motor, very few parts, very slow turning and very low temperature. So, from that
perspective, there's less wear and tear, if at
all, there's no friction, there's no need for
lubrication - so there's no oil changes for
lubrication and so on and so forth. From a
maintenance perspective, there's significantly less, " he continued.
Charging the planes is also just as simple.
magniX is designing its systems to utilize

the same charging capabilities as that of
electric cars already on the market.
" So be it car or truck chargers, we're using
that same technology. From that perspective, Sydney Seaplanes will be able to install
these types of chargers at their ports or at
their docks, " Ganzarski said. " And when a
plane arrives, just like with an electric car,
you open up the cover, plug in the charger,
you can do one or two, depending on how
you set up the aircraft, and charge the
" And while you're charging it, just like
with a car, because it's such a high safety
level, while you're charging it, people can be
deplaning or boarding, you can be taking
off packages or loading packages. So from
that perspective, there's a great advantage
that you can be in and around the aircraft
while it's charging, just like you can with
an electric car. "

Seaplanes, not only can they do their own
aircraft, that can also be a source of business for them to do other people's aircraft. "
The STC is expected to be completed by
the end of the first quarter of 2023, Shaw

All Electric, Little

When icing conditions occur, rely on
our Goodrich® de-icing systems for
safer and more efficient operations.

Aside from the obvious environmental
benefits of propulsion sans fossil fuel, the
electrically equipped planes will require far
less maintenance than their oily counterparts, as well.
