Embry-Riddle partners on electric airplane project
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Fla., is partnering with a company founded by Erik Lindbergh — the grandson of Charles Lindbergh — to curb emissions and noise from aircraft engines by developing new electric and hybrid power systems. Lindbergh, CEO of Powering Imagination, and Dr. Richard Anderson, director of the Eagle Flight Research Center at Embry-Riddle, noted that pollution and noise from aircraft engines is becoming a serious public relations problem for aviation.
