Dufour Aerospace announces selection of Air Energy as partner for battery modules

Dufour Aerospace has announced that Air Energy has been selected as a supplier for the smart battery packs for the hybrid-electric propulsion system of the uncrewed tilt-wing aircraft Aero2. The company says Air Energy will design the battery housing, the mechanical and electrical connection of the battery packs and the battery management system for the Aero2.

Jasmine Kent, Co-founder and CTO of Dufour Aerospace says: “Aero2 is a hybrid VTOL aircraft, so batteries are a critical component, and it was very important to us that we find the right partner. Air Energy has an outstanding track record of supplying high performance battery systems for light aircraft, and we are proud to select them to provide the battery modules for Aero2. Each module has its own battery management system (BMS), enabling in-flight charging of the batteries, allowing us to approach the landing zone with a full charge and maximum performance. It also enables rapid touch-and-go ground turnaround, without having to wait between flights for recharging. We are excited to partner with Air Energy on the supply of these critical power modules for our first production aircraft.”
