Hydroplane Announces Pre-Launch Waitlist at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2022 for its First Hydrogen Powerplant
OSHKOSH, WI – Los Angeles-based Hydroplane (EAA AirVenture 2022 Booths 4055 & 4066 in Hangar D) is excited to announce it has begun a pre-launch, no obligation waitlist for the first Hydroplane hydrogen fuel cell powerplants at EAA AirVenture 2022. While there is no financial commitment, pilots and aircraft owners on the waitlist will have the first opportunity to purchase Hydroplane’s modular hydrogen fuel cell powerplant and will receive regular updates on the company’s progress. Those interested can sign up in person at the Hydroplane’s EAA AirVenture 2022 booth (Booths 4055 & 4066 in Hangar D) and receive a complimentary #eMissionH2O water bottle (while supplies last) or online here.
“Our fuel cell electric powerplant for single-engine aircraft is your opportunity to combat climate change, at altitude, by emitting only water,” said Hydroplane CEO Dr. Anita Sengupta, herself an avid general aviation pilot. “We are excited to now offer people the opportunity to be the first to transition to sustainable, carbon emission-free propulsion.”
Meet the Hydroplane engineering team at their booth to see a Green H2 production demo, learn how fuel cells work, and join the waitlist. The team will also be live tweeting on Twitter (@HydroplaneAero) under hashtag #eMissionH2O #Hydroplane and will host Facebook Live (@HydroplaneAero) events during the show to give away free promotional items.
Hydroplane is developing a modular 200-kW (270 hp) hydrogen fuel cell powerplant for the experimental aircraft, general aviation, and urban air mobility markets that outperforms battery alternatives in endurance with no charge time. Funded by the U.S. Air Force’s prestigious Agility Prime Program and led by space program veterans, the sustainable aviation company is developing its novel electric propulsion powerplant to replace combustion-piston driven engines in currently certified, experimental, and future aircraft. Hydroplane’s novel fuel cell stack and balance plant is specifically designed for single engine aviation as it is light weight with a compact form factor, highly durable, and emits only water. Hydroplane is on track to fly its demonstrator aircraft in 2023.
