Pipistrel Alpha Electro flight trainer will be built at new production facility near Nanjing, China

Pipistrel Goes to Asia

Slovenian aircraft company Pipistrel signs accord to build two of its aircraft outside Nanjing, China with sales destined for some eleven countries in the region, including China.

China isn't just the world's largest car market, it's a pretty good bet it could also be the world's largest airplane market, especially light airplanes. So, it makes sense that Ivo Boscarol, the founder and head of Pipistrel (Slovenian for "Bat") would partner up with Chinese entrepreneur and Danny Wu Hao to produce aircraft for the Chinese a...

UEVs: The Submerged World of Underwater Electric Vehicles

They are one of the oldest forms of hybrid electric vehicles, and like their surface counterparts, the human is about to be relegated to the role of an observer or target.

It was 90 years ago that the US Navy proposed powering its new S-Class submarines using a system similar to what powers today's hybrid cars - the Prius and the Volt, for example - an internal combustion engine connected via a special transmission to a generator/motor combination. On the surface, diesel engines would turn the prop shaft and/o...

Roof Racks, Boat Tails, and other Aerodynamic Oddities

By John Gilkison

A comparative analysis of five Coefficient of Drag Graphs (up to 100 mph) in Cd = 0.05 increments from Cd = 0.13 up to Cd = 0.33. This includes the Tesla Model 3 at Cd = 0.023 and a aerodynamically modified Tesla down to Cd = 0.179. Also included is an ideal body form of Cd = 0.13 and a Nissan Leaf body form at Cd = 0.28. Finally we have a Cd = 0.33 body form which is the shape of most cars on the market approximately.

Roof Racks, Boat Tails, and other Aerodynamic Oddities It has been a strange month for Aerostealth Works shooting You Tube Videos and for aerodynamic exposes in general. If you have been following any of my recent blog post here at EV World or my Vlogs on You Tube you may have noted Phil Knox and I have been working on explaining aerodynamic graph...
