Meet the Celera 500L, a bullet-shaped airplane from Otto Aviation aiming to revolutionize traveling forever by cutting fuel consumption 8 times and bringing emission-free electric aviation incredibly closer.
The egg-shaped design of the aircraft helps achieve laminar flow on the plane’s surface, reducing drag by 59% compared to similarly sized aircraft.
As a result, the plane gets fuel economy figures between incredible 18-25 miles per gallon, which is better than a large SUV and an average pickup truck. The efficiency will be further improved once Celera is equipped with Hydrogen-electric powertrain in cooperation with Zero Avia later on.
